The contention that they could be used to wipe America off the map is the most misleading. Only very few states have the rocket capability to hit the US from that range and Iraq was never one of them. You can not seperate the goal of ridding Iraq of WMD from that of liberating Iraq from Saddams regime as they are the same.
It's undeniable that was what this administration led the American people and its allies to believe. Those in the know at the time knew how fraudulent that assessment was. (That Iraq was such a danger.)Unfortunately, the compliant mainstream media trumpeted the White House line for months leading up to the invasion. That was why the everyone went along with it. It's natural for citizens to want to believe in their leadership. Hell, back during the Gulf War I had complete confidence in Bush I's leadership - down to my company commander. No one wants to think our leaders are lying to us. Unfortunately in the case of the invasion it was a complete fraud - and so many people's lives have been destroyed because of it. I voted for Bush. I have every right to criticize his pathetic "leadership." Wouldn't you agree?
Sorry one last question, do you believe there is accountability in any Whitehouse administration??
