Why are you such a damned liar Carol? The Downing Street memo shows that Bush was determined to invade Iraq even if the evidence didn't justify it. It stated;<quoted text>
111 Democrats thought it was a noble and necessary cause. And, yes, they really did have access to the same Intel as Bush and the UN - and, yes, they knew Saddam had WMDs before he was given enough time to get rid of them.
That's a lot of Democrats.
Saddam would have become another of Obama's problems unless the UN followed through on their "serious consequences" threat.
So what do you think the UN would have done to be considered serious enough? Always wondered about that myself.
Obama can't even handle what's on his plate now - much less Saddam and Iraq - had the UN's consequences not been serious enough.
“Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD,”“But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.”
The head of Britain’s spy service at the time, Richard Dearlove, had met with CIA Director at the time George Tenet days before the memo was written. From that meeting, Dearlove concluded:“It seemed clear that Bush had made up his mind to take military action, even if the timing was not yet decided. But the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbours, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran.”
And no nitwit, the Bush administration doctored intelligence and scrubbed it of anything that would put doubt on their dubious evidence.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!
