Well, the "liberal media" in this country is finally getting around to letting us know what the rest of the world knew before the last war(I think it's the last one? Geez, it's getting hard to keep track:scratch: ). And with no hint of "I told you so", I posted on this board, also before the last war. I must admit to maybe missing the 45 minute thing, but hey, one only has so much time and frankly I thought it so laughable as to not be worth the trouble. It was well known to anyone who wanted to know, or wanted to report it, that UN inspectors(the ones we couldn't trust, remember?) had debunked the "yellow crud", or whatever it is, story from Niger, AND the "aluminum tube" fantasy. I assume they also thought the 45 minute thing was too ludicrious to comment on also considering a country that was under severe sanctions and weekly(at least) bombings for twelve years. And now it also appears that anyone with a security clearance higher then gate sentry knew it too. They just didn't want to say it. How about those links to al Qaeda and 9/11? Did I forget anything? Oh yeah, what was going to happen AFTER? I admit that might have been a kind of rhetorical question. You know, the kind with no answer. Because that's what we still have. No answer. So what exactly happened here? Did Junior lie to US? Surely not! Was ours and Britain's intelligence that poor? Well the 007 crowd are sticking to their story but they do have a hara-kiried scientist on their hands and 1/3 of the polls calling for Tony's. The CIA says they knew all along. But somehow they forgot to get this information to the White House. Ooops! Damned government employees! OK, let's be fair. We were SPUN into the last war. We were plastered with information that had very little or no basis in reality and anything contradictory was ignored, discarded or fancifully explained away. One more thing. How long will it be before GWB, and the rest of you, admit there are no WMDs in Iraq? Until we have time to plant some? I assume the only reason this hasn't happened is because the sooner before the election you plant them, the greater possibility you'll be discovered before the election. And that's the end of Dubbya. So I predict, if we don't actually find some real WMDs(anything's possible) before then, shortly before November 2004(2-4 months my guess, maybe 9/11? Nah, that'd be too obvious) we will miraculously "find" the elusive cashe of evil Saddam's evil weapons. If it's discovered after the election, he'll claim "plausable deniability". Maybe he can hire Ollie North back. It'd be fun to get ALL the old crew back together again. For God's sake fellas! And I do not use that phrase lightly. He was supposed to be swimming in this stuff. So much it was leaking across the border and he was handing it out like party favors to terrorists! Where is the stuff? We can't even find a trace. Not even from when Rumsfield and Daddy knew he had them and didn't care! Parts of a centrifuge buried for twelve years in a rose garden and ambiguous, non-functioning trailers do not "programs" make! And apparently they "make" very little WMDs either.
