Subject: RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!
I happen--again--to agree with beardedbruce. (This is twice in three months, bb, and it's gotta stop.)

The UN was continuing to get a run-around from Iraq over searches, etc. They kept getting stalled by this or that government official. That is true--and pretty much accepted by all except people who still think the world is flat.

The other issue being discussed is that of the US deciding to invade Iraq without UN sanction.

I do not doubt that the White House was fed some information that was less than accurate--at whose behest I have no idea. The US wanted to get into Iraq. And it did despite most of the allies from the Gulf War declining the offer to participate.

I think that George Bush is too stupid to knowingly carry-off the verisimilitude that was necessary to engage the American Congress/people in the present war. I think differently about Cheney, Rove, Wolfowitz, etc. The advisors to the President are dangerous people. Wars create tremendous opportunities to make money. A few companies have made megabucks on this war. Cui bono? Ask the age-old question and then ya have a place to look. IMO.
