Why is no one talking about this?
I've been listening to a lot of air america these days. What amazes
me is that ever there, I've only heard one mention of the now-leaked
British memo that states the Bush Administration in 2002 had, among
"Bush has made up his mind to take military action.”
The head of MI:6 states: “the intelligence and facts were being fixed
around the policy.”
And Jack Straw, the Foreign Minister “the case was thin. Saddam was
not threatening his neighbors and his WMD capability was less than
that of Libya, North Korea or Iran.”
Meanwhile, the Administration was stating in August of 2002:
The State Department deputy spokesman said shot down ideas that the
administration was pushing for war saying, “There are no plans to
attack Iraq on the President’s desk. He has said that."
So now where are we 2 years from now?
We have spent ~$300 Billion dollars on the war to date
We have lost 1602 US Soldiers with ~12,000 wounded
100,000+ Iraqis have been killed. That's 1:250 people in Iraq
Why aren't you outraged?
