Would you please cite your source that Bush made up the whole WMD thing?
Or, are you just pretending your angry, vile fantasy life is real and state it as fact?

lol!

"...SPIEGEL: But it was your agency that was coming up with all the wrong information concerning Saddam Hussein's alleged weapons of mass destruction. To what degree is the intelligence community responsible for the disaster?

Drumheller: The agency is not blameless and no president on my watch has had a spotless record when it comes to the CIA. But never before have I seen the manipulation of intelligence that has played out since Bush took office. As chief of Europe I had a front-row seat from which to observe the unprecedented drive for intelligence justifying the Iraq war.

SPIEGEL: One of the crucial bits of information the Bush administration used to justify the invasion was the supposed existence of mobile biological weapons laboratories. That came from a German BND source who was given the code-name "Curveball." An offical investigation in the United States concluded that of all of the false statements that were made, this was the most damaging of all.

Drumheller: I think it is, it was a centerpiece. Curveball was an Iraqi who claimed to be an engineer working on the biological weapons program. When he became an asylum-seeker in Germany, the BND questioned him and produced a large number of reports that were passed here through the Defense Intelligence Agency. Curveball was a sort of clever fellow who carried on about his story and kept everybody pretty well convinced for a long time.

SPIEGEL: There are more than a few critics in Washington who claim that the Germans, because of Curveball, bear a large part of the repsonsibility for the intelligence mess.

Drumheller: There was no effort by the Germans to influence anybody from the beginning. Very senior officials in the BND expressed their doubts, that there may be problems with this guy. They were very professional. I know that there are people at the CIA who think the Germans could have set stronger caveats. But nobody says: "Here's a great intel report, but we don't believe it." There were also questions inside the CIA's analytical section, but as it went forward, this information was seized without caveats. The administration wanted to make the case for war with Iraq. They needed a tangible thing, they needed the German stuff. They couldn't go to war based just on the fact that they wanted to change the Middle East. They needed to have something threatening to which they were reacting.

SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.

Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."..."

That dog and pony show just won't quit.

Oh yeah, just a note...

It's been determined that Jeff Ts in MPLSh!T is the DOG and Bronach the LIAR is the PONY (ass).

GW Baffoon didn't retaliate, dumbazz.... He invaded Iraq based on a bunch of lies he, the Dark Lard, and the puppeteer conjured up and fed congress. Saddam has WMDs and we know where they are!! ROTFALMFAO!! He invaded a sovereign nation that had absolutely NO CONNECTION to 911 (admitted later by the Baffoon himself).. so ya... that makes him a murderer. Funny how the moron took his eyes off Afghanistan.. where the real terrorists were. Also funny... how in 8 years, the Baffoon couldn't, wouldn't, didn't nail OBL.(Obama got him mid way thru his 1st term... so it couldn't have been that hard.) But I guess if the Baffoon nailed OBL, it would have put a crimp in the Bin Laden/Bush business partnership, wouldn't it??? Money before the American people ... the fright wing motto.
Hey buttmunch!

The whole world thought that Saddam Hussein had WMDs.

Every intelligence agency on the planet said they had stockpiles.

You lame lies make you worthy of disgrace and of dishonor.

Absolutely correct. When the GOP use proclamations such as "never let a disaster go to waste", they need to look back to the lies told to the American public to further an agenda that had in fact nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. The country was in a state of fear and panic - what an optimal time to focus on their own agenda, and decieve the public. Remember all those lights to indicate if a terrorist attack MAY be forthcoming? Another scare tactic. Which is why Colin Powell eventually left the White House also.
You a laugh a minute.

Everybody thought Saddam had WMDs.

He kicked out the weapons inspectors more than a dozen times.

Then he threaten the entire Middle East.

The Iraqi people have since been liberated thanks to America and our troops.

It's all in their hands now.

But you'll always be a pederast coxsucker.

Just like you rapist father!

Bush admits to no weapons of mass destruction, and that Iraq had no role in 9/11;
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
But we were told something entirely different;
http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB326...
"To justify the war, Bush informed Congress on March 19, 2003 that acting against Iraq was consistent with “continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.”

Thanks for SUPPORTING my FACTUAL position, even though you tried to look stupid doing so! Proves once again facts will trump opinions!
