Perles of Stupidity

According to the Washington Post (via WIIIAI), neocon douchebag Richard Perle defended his support for the war in Iraq to Congress:
Perle wasn't about to provide the apology Jones sought. He disavowed any responsibility for his confident prewar assertions about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, heaping the blame instead on "appalling incompetence" at the CIA. "There is reason to believe that we were sucked into an ill-conceived initial attack aimed at Saddam himself by double agents planted by the regime. And as we now know the estimate of Saddam's stockpile of weapons of mass destruction was substantially wrong."
(Emphasis added)In other words, getting rid of Saddam was Saddam's idea, and we fell for it.

The only thing stupider than Perle falling for the WMD lies would be us falling for Perle's lies. BTW, the Jones mentioned above is Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr. is a conservative Republican from North Carolina who voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq. According to the article, Jones was ripping Perle several new ones, if you can rip one a new one, that is:
Jones, nearly in tears as he held up Perle's testimony, glared at the witness. "I went to a Marine's funeral who left a wife and three children, twins he never saw, and I'll tell you, I apologize, Mr. Chairman, but I am just incensed with this statement."
Simple solution, Representative Jones. Turn your attention to the idiot-in-chief who hired Perle, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice and all of the other criminal liars, and then turn your attention to articles of impeachment. If you're lucky, you'll get a few Democrats to come along.
