Fake reasons equates to faulty intelligence services or faulty intelligence information, for which had been gathered and documented over the time of
1993 to 2002? The questions abound on many issues.
If Iraq had
no WMD or programs, then why did Saddam "play the game"?
Why did Saddam, with hundreds of thousands of troops massing on his borders, continue to not provide nor contradict Bush or the UN by providing said
documentation for those "unaccounted for" WMD that even Saddam/Iraq admitted to?
This type questions could go on....
As for Bush and the administration...
Did he really know the evidence was bogus or not accurate or up-to-date?
Did he go by what he was advised by his cabinet and intelligence services, who, in turn, no doubt, were relying on those 'old' and some semi-current
intelligence documents and documentations?
Why is the UN still showing that Saddam/Iraq currently still
have "unaccounted for" WMD listed and not explained?
David Kay has mentioned in a few interviews and articles that he believes that the blame does not reside with the current administration, ie: Bush,
but with the intelligence agencies responsible for providing the currect, up-to-date intelligence information to allow for the President and advisors
to make sound, credible assessments and judgements.
All-in-all, possible ultimate responsibility will most assuredly rest with Bush and the administration...do to the position, but for sure, the real
and true blame can be passed to many.
Again, a complete investigation, involving all parties, past and present, needs to take place. Another contention that makes this even more frailed ,
is that no one has been fired or found at fault for anything since 9/11 or in regards to this.....and thats pure bunk!
