Diplomat's Suppressed Document Lays Bare the Lies behind Iraq War
December 15, 2006 http://tinyurl.com/ye8w94
The Government's case for going to war in Iraq has been torn apart by the publication of previously suppressed evidence that Tony Blair lied over Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.
A devastating attack on Mr. Blair's justification for military action by Carne Ross, Britain's key negotiator at the UN, has been kept under wraps until now because he was threatened with being charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act.
In the testimony revealed today Mr. Ross, 40, who helped negotiate several UN security resolutions on Iraq, makes it clear that Mr. Blair must have known Saddam Hussein possessed no weapons of mass destruction. He said that during his posting to the UN, "at no time did HMG [Her Majesty's Government] assess that Iraq's WMD (or any other capability) posed a threat to the UK or its interests."
Mr Ross revealed it was a commonly held view among British officials dealing with Iraq that any threat by Saddam Hussein had been "effectively contained".
He also reveals that British officials warned US diplomats that bringing down the Iraqi dictator would lead to the chaos the world has since witnessed. "I remember on several occasions the UK team stating this view in terms during our discussions with the US (who agreed)," he said.
It shows Mr. Ross told the inquiry, chaired by Lord Butler, "there was no intelligence evidence of significant holdings of CW [chemical warfare], BW [biological warfare] or nuclear material" held by the Iraqi dictator before the invasion. "There was, moreover, no intelligence or assessment during my time in the job that Iraq had any intention to launch an attack against its neighbors or the UK or the US," he added.
Mr. Ross's evidence directly challenges the assertions by the Prime Minster that the war was legally justified because Saddam possessed WMDs which could be "activated" within 45 minutes and posed a threat to British interests. These claims were also made in two dossiers, subsequently discredited, in spite of the advice by Mr. Ross.
Mr. Ross said in late 2002 that he "discussed this at some length with David Kelly", the weapons expert who a year later committed suicide when he was named as the source of a BBC report saying Downing Street had "sexed up" the WMD claims in a dossier. The Butler inquiry cleared Mr. Blair and Downing Street of "sexing up" the dossier, but the publication of the Carne Ross evidence will cast fresh doubts on its findings.
Mr Ross, 40, was a highly rated diplomat but he resigned because of his misgivings about the legality of the war. He still fears the threat of action under the Official Secrets Act.

What does his mother have to do with being President?
His values and his good sense are what matters.
Cruz is young to be President. Is Obamacare going to

Certainly, allow me.
If you are born there, you are a son of the soil, as in Kenya. If not, you are a son of the soil where you were born. In Obama's case that would NOT be Hawaii where there is no valid birth certificate proving that imaginary birthplace.
Holla!
That isn't motive.

If he was Kenyan, he was still an American citizen via his mother.

The only reason possible for your whole birther scenario is to make him appear "naturally born".

The only benefit "naturally born" gives you is the ability to run for President.

So, his mother must have known he would be running for president in order for any of the birther story to gel at all.

You still have no motive. He was already entitled to citizenship. EVEN if born on Neptune.

So... why the ruse?

That is motive. It is generally what makes conspiracy theories work. You are still holding an empty bag.

The British Nationality Act of 1948 applies to British Colonies only.

Last I checked the U.S. hasn't been a British Colony since the D.O.I.

It simply does not apply here.

Obama's Muslim Childhood
by Daniel Pipes
The Washington Times
September 10-14, 2012
Contradictions
Asked about the religion of his childhood and youth, Obama offers contradictory answers. He finessed a Mar. 2004 question, "Have you always been a Christian?" by replying: "I was raised more by my mother and my mother was Christian." But in Dec. 2007 he belatedly decided to give a straight answer: "My mother was a Christian from Kansas. I was raised by my mother. So, I've always been a Christian." In Feb. 2009, however, he offered a completely different account:
I was not raised in a particularly religious household. I had a father who was born a Muslim but became an atheist, grandparents who were non-practicing Methodists and Baptists, and a mother who was skeptical of organized religion. I didn't become a Christian until I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college.
He further elaborated this answer in Sept. 2010, saying: "I came to my Christian faith later in life."
Which is it? Has Obama "always been a Christian" or did he "become a Christian" after college? Self-contradiction on so fundamental a matter of identity, when added to the general questioning about the accuracy of his autobiography, raises questions about veracity; would someone telling the truth say such varied and opposite things about himself? Inconsistency is typical of fabrication: when making things up, it's hard to stick with the same story. Obama appears to be hiding something. Was he the areligious child of irreligious parents? Or was he always a Christian? A Muslim? Or was he, in fact, something of his own creation a Christian/Muslim?

No one gives a crap which god his step-dad liked.

I don't think Barack is religious at all.

But anyone running for office in America WILL claim to be a man of god.

They lap it up.

My biggest concern when Barry got into the race was his ridiculously thin on experience resume. It was obvious to anyone that heard him read a prepared speech off a TelePrompTer that he was highly skilled at speaking to a crowd, and that he was "cool". I was thinking that a presidential candidate needed more private sector experience then being a street level drug dealer in his teens though, or a successful governorship in one of our larger states to be taken seriously. Turns out I was wrong on that one. Not the first time and probably won't be the last. I just would like to see democrats be a bit more focused on substance then symbolism. Wishful thinking.
