Those pesky WMDs

Warnings on WMD 'Fabricator' Were Ignored, Ex-CIA Aide Says. But Colin Powell plunged ahead anyway. This despite a significant paragraph being removed from his speech, and then re-instated. Seems the source was an Iraqi defector who was suspected of being mentally unstable and a liar.

So now, the death toll of Iraqis tops 50,000, which is roughly equivalent to 570,000 US soldiers. All over fabricated information. Someone tell me how this government is not acting criminally?

There is a tragic flaw in our precious Constitution, and I don?t know what can be done to fix it. This is it: Only nut cases want to be president.

Kurt is right. Regarding Curveball and his ridiculous lies, the republicans knew the guy was a flake but they couldn't find credible sources like, uhhhhhmmmm, the weapons inspectors, to make outrageous claims about WMDs.

Karena, why seek out weapons inspectors when you can go to another liar who is mentally ill? I mean, they speak a common language, yes?

"Curveball" definitely has Georgie's hand in that title...I really think he doesn't think of much of anything with the exception of baseball. What a sad state of affairs...although I think there is much going on that he knows nothing of...shielded by the Dickster that is. Thanks for the visit and the link...I shall reciprocate.

Yoga, the Republicans are just outraged by blowjobs. It is so much more serious than lying in order to go to war.

Sumo, George also thinks about fishing on his private lake.

And Blasty McBirdshot is outraged because he gets caught looking into private citizens' financial records.
