When a man or woman dies wearing their uniform, do you still call it a costume?
I see the righties here dancing all around evading the subject of the thread "General Powell demands answers from CIA, Pentagon and DIA about the WMDs lies. But that is not surprising.;-)
I am not dancing around anything Roger. I don't know who lied or is lying now. I think it is pretty evident that they did have WMD's at one time. Did they have them in 2003? Doesnt look like it. But I don't know who to blame, if there is anyone to blame. I do know that you posting a link about this same damn topic weekly isn't going to change anything. We went to war, we are still there and I don't know when we will be home. If you want to do something productive, why not pack a care package and mail it to some service man over there fighting the war you like to bitch about.
Published on Saturday, January 10, 2004 by CBS NewsThe Bush Administration began laying plans for an invasion of Iraq, including the use of American troops, within days of President Bush's inauguration in January of 2001 -- not eight months later after the 9/11 attacks as has been previously reported. http://www.commondreams.org/images/startquote.gif
Saddam's Ouster Planned In '01?
O'Neill is quoted as saying he was surprised that no one in a National Security Council meeting questioned why Iraq should be invaded. "It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying 'Go find me a way to do this. '"
That's what former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill says in his first interview about his time as a White House insider. O'Neill talks to Correspondent Lesley Stahl in the interview, to be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
I guess he should have been more thorough before he signed up for the job.
