We won't forget though....we'll be paying for it for generations to come.
    I hope I am missing something here but...
    When a man or woman dies wearing their uniform, do you still call it a costume?

    You are. Its called sarcasm. Dave is just trying to say that us conservatives will say anything to distance ourselves from the General. And I really hope he is wrong.

    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.

    This is current news not something I am dragging up from the past. These articles were written on the 15th of February 2011 and answered by General Powell on the 16th of February, 2011. But one thing for sure Bush43 lied about WMD.


    Published on Saturday, January 10, 2004 by CBS News
    Saddam's Ouster Planned In '01?
    The 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.
    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.

    You guys are both missing something. DNF was told on another thread that his uniform was nothing more than a costume to him. Pretty disrespectful on the part of the other involved party, IMO, so don't go blasting Dave on this one. He's got plenty of other things that you can blast him about though, if you so desire.

    All I have to say regarding his demands and the quote that you put in your post is that:

    Maybe General Powell should have been a little more thorough before he signed his name.
    IF he is now 100% sure he was duped.

    I have a feeling Gen. Powell was just being the good soldier he was trained to be. He certainly had his reservation, and tried to talk Bush out of going into Iraq. But, once the decision was made, he saluted smartly and charged up the hill (to paraphrase Oliver North). I don’t think he ever believed the administration would leave him to be the fall guy, and push him to the sidelines.

    I guess he should have been more thorough before he signed up for the job.
