Who Is Lying About Iraq?

Interesting essay by Norman Podhoretz titled "Who Is Lying About Iraq?". Podhoretz basically confirms how I've felt for a long time when it comes to whether Bush purposely lied or not about WMD.

Yes, it's true I wasn't too keen about war with Iraq when it began. Nonetheless, no matter how hard I try to convince myself, I still don't think any evidence gives me reason to seriously think that the Bush Administration was involved in some mass conspiracy, lying to our Democrat leaders, the public, and the entire world about WPDs in Iraq.

Anybody who does think the Bush Administration had the gaul to do such a thing, seems to be reading much more into the circumstances and evidence than I'm able to. Perhaps I'm wrong though, so please share information if you disagree.

oh I agree wholeheartedly. President Bush is the victim in this situation.

Woah...I didn't say he was the victim, did I?

Again, my feeling is that Saddam virtually fooled the whole world. Not only was there bi-partisan belief in Saddam's "grave threat," but intelligence from many foreign countries that said the same thing.

If you have that kind of burden on your shoulders, you act, so it's really impossible to put all the blame on Bush. Opponents say that Bush is benefiting from the war through oil, and they quickly rallied behind the U.N...the French, and the Germans,...who were all proved to be making money off of Saddam through corruption. So the real opponents here to the war are the same socialists who were against the Afghan war, as well as the strictly partisan.

Even while the Iraq threat didn't meet up to the hype, you still have to be at least glad that a horrendous dictator got what was coming. While the Democrats claim to be on the troops side, and want to bring them home, if you ask most of the troops, they'll say that their sacrifice is worth the war.

Then you have Michael Moore who has literally duped thousands of Democrats by pretending to be against the war, against Halliburton, but who is really benefiting more than most from it all, through his movies and stocks in those "evil" corporations, who also supposedly only hires black men (while his movie crews are all white...maybe the black men clean up after him.)

Truth is, you can't be anti-capitalism, and Pro-America. If so, you're only stating that you support a land mass, not a way of life. Yet, if we took this land mass from the Native Americans, shouldn't we just give it back and pack our bags? Wouldn't that be the right thing to do?
