Our old buddy, former Reagan administration member Paul Craig Roberts, that is. He concludes his latest wonderful screed, A War Waged by Liars and Morons, with this:
Will President Bush ever tell us the real reason why he committed America's treasure, the lives of American soldiers and the reputation of our country to war in Iraq?He makes an excellent case for impeachment based on the various Downing Street memos. I will take issue with Roberts on this paragraph:
Does he even know?
Congress gave Bush the go-ahead for the invasion because Congress trusted Bush and believed his word that Iraq had fearsome weapons that would be unleashed on America unless we preempted Saddam Hussein's attack by striking first. Congress did not give Bush the go-ahead for initiating a war in order to spend hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives "building democracy in Iraq."No. Congress didn't trust Bush. They just work for the same people (Hint--it isn't us).
