<quoted text>December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- Bush and Cheney are cway's cover of smoke and deranged bullshit..
I hardly rule out the possibility Clinton exaggerated the Iraqi threat. But at the time, the UN inspectors were in some doubt as to whether Hussein was in compliance. By 2003, Hans Blix was confident Iraq had been disarmed, with a few unresolved issues he felt could be determined within several months.

***Regardless of the truth or falsity of Clinton's earlier claims, the Bush administration manufactured their own set of lies and pushed them relentlessly on the public.***

Cheney made these remarks:

"We know he has been absolutely trying to acquire nuclear weapons and we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons."

Former senior CIA analyst, Paul Pillar, had this to say regarding the administration's handling of intelligence:
"It has become clear that official intelligence was not relied on in making even the most significant national security decisions, that intelligence was misused publicly to justify decisions already made...

Pillar further wrote that the prewar intelligence asserted Hussein's "weapons capacities," but he said the "broad view" within the United States and overseas "was that Saddam was being kept 'in his box' " by U.N. sanctions."

Note how the White House's media hit man and CIA outer, Robert Novak, fingered Pillar in a negative editorial after the latter expressed belief the insurgency in Iraq could escalate into a full-scale guerilla war. It was an election year and Bush was trying to convince voters the aftermath was going smoothly.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

The Bush administration knew the alleged Hussein purchase of yellow uranium was bogus and a CIA agent pointed it out in March, 2002. Despite this, Bush went right ahead ten months later and used the suspect documents in his January, 2003 address to Congress.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/3056626.s...

When former ambassador, Joe Wilson, returning from an investigative trip to **Nigeria**, publicly challenged the uranium allegations, the administration's response was to reveal the covert identity of his CIA wife, Valerie Plame.

The Downing Street Memo makes clear that facts were being "fixed" around policy.

Not impossible, but conclusive proof is sorely lacking.
What hurts Bush and Cheney is they told so many whoppers.
Like the mobile "bio-weapon labs" which were used for inflating weather balloons. Or the "uranium enrichment tubes" which UNSCOM later commented were not suitable for the purpose.
The mendacious duo also made full use of dubious sources like the Iranian defector, "Curve Ball". A nickname given by the CIA signifying his dubious credibility.
Outing Valerie Plame in retaliation for her husband writing a critical editorial in the NY Times, on the alledged *yellowcake* uranium purchase, reveals a very malignant mindset on the part of the administration.
Rather than re-evaluate the case against Iraq, the response shows how desperate they were to keep their shabby casus belli from falling apart.
Valerie Plame was a Washington party girl, not a covert CIA agent.

I'm not a big fan of the police state mentality.
Holder refuses to rule out domestic use of drones to kill American citizens without benefit of due process. There is no legislation on this subject.

What more do you need?

Opposition to the police state mentality occurs on both right and left.

Colin Powell lied when he gave the reason for his voting for Obama, after having been a member of the Republican party, and we all know why he suddenly had a "change of heart and party".

Did you happen to catch the news report late last night about a reported Drone sighted flying around JFK Airport in heavy air traffic late yesterday?

An Air Italia Pilot reported it to the Control Tower.

Nothing reported further since.

This is getting spooky. Make that Spooky with a capital S.

Current corporate profits are a hollow shell in the Obama economy.

Corporations are making profits by cutting overhead (employees) to the bone, not by growing the business. Much of this is because Obama policies, mostly Obamacare, make employees unaffordable. This strategy works in the short term, but is not sustainable.

Senator Rand Paul's opposition is to Obama's drone execution policy. not to the insignificant cypher appointed to the CIA.

i WOULDN'T ARGUE WITH YOU THAT our police can be very heavy handed at times. Likely a result of so many crimes, perhaps tied to drug laws. I learned when young the best course is a low profile and to obey traffic laws, keeps your encounters with the police to an absolute minimum.
The police never seem to be disciplined either.
But yet Obama wants the police (and retired cops, no less) to be the only ones with guns.

Who protects us from them?

John,

A House subcommittee investigation came to a different conclusion. She worked behind the cover of a private firm, Jennings Brewster and Associates. She managed spies overseas and was head of the CIA's Joint Iraqi Task Force.

To describe Plame as a "party girl" is clearly spin of the thinnest kind.

She was in her 40s, married, with two kids.

Most people who have children don't want criminals like Trayvon roaming their neighborhood.

There would not even be a prosecution in this case except for black racist hysteria incited by the likes of Obama and Holder.

This case is total BS.
