He said it

"The stakes in the global war on terror are too high and the national interest is too important for politicians to throw out false charges." -- George W. Bush, today.

Like these false charges?
The Iraqi regime has violated all of those obligations. It possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons. It has given shelter and support to terrorism.
If we know Saddam Hussein has dangerous weapons today -- and we do -- does it make any sense for the world to wait to confront him as he grows even stronger and develops even more dangerous weapons?
-- George W. Bush, October 7, 2002

Will aWol's new attack on the pro-war Democrats work? I hope so, in the sense that it finally makes Americans realize that BOTH major parties are in the wrong, and that it's time to throw them both out. Bush is accusing them of lying now--on what basis can he claim that they were being truthful back in 2002 when they voted for his criminal war?

And while I'm convinced that both the administration and the warmongers in Congress knew full well that Iraq posed no threat back in 2002, it still doesn't get Bush or pro-war Congress off the hook if they truly believed the lies they told themselves. UN inspectors went back to Iraq, and in four months of looking everywhere the CIA told them to look they found exactly what the US inpsectors led by Kay and Duelfer found later--absolutely nothing. The UN inspectors may not have conclusively proved that Saddam wasn't still lying or hiding weapons, but they certainly had proved that he posed no imminent threat whatsoever.

IMPEACH. NOW. And throw everyone in Congress who voted for war out on his or her ass, or elephant, as the case may be.
