I want you to view this video again. And again, if need be. It's since been revealed that the administration knew this clearly wasn't the case. Your typical average American would call this a "lie."
Rewind back to 2002: Then-President G.W. Bush claimed that Saddam Hussein's Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and this was the major -- but not the only -- reason his administration used to justify a US invasion. Despite echoing exactly what numerous Democrats had said not very long prior, Bush was accused by Democrats of "lying" when US forces turned up no (or outdated) WMD in Iraq. I think Scott Monje pretty much encapsulates my view about the whole Iraq mess during Bush's two terms. It wasn't that Pres. Bush lied about WMD; it's that after Sept. 11, 2001, he and his administration were going to use any and every excuse to once and for all stop Saddam from f***ing around with us and the UN. Questionable intel was overlooked or ignored. Do I exonerate Mr. Bush for the invasion? Absolutely not. But besides him selectively choosing the best intel to "make his case," again I ask: Why would Bush "lie" knowing American forces would find zilch WMD? This makes no sense. It's as if W had a presidential suicide wish.
Or, to put it more succinctly, Bush made a [big] mistake.
But nothing will ever convince hardcore moonbats of this. Yet, they'll make every excuse in the book for Pres. I-Don't-Knowbama's outright falsehood about keeping your health insurance if you want to ... among [many?] other things. I wonder if the LGOMB's "El Somnambulo," for instance, will ever change his avatar from a pic of Pres. Bush holding up a prison number, to one of Boss Obama doing same.
Cheeyeah, right. How silly of me. That'd be racist.Posted by Hube at October 30, 2013 05:43 PM | TrackBack
