    The way the administration handled this whole thing reminds me of a scene from "Days of Thunder":

Those quotes don't mean much at all to me. I think all the facts suggest Bush made an irrational decision and didn't acknowledge all the risks of invading and commiting to war, and his administration has been accused of intentionally misleading the nation on the existence of WMDs. There was no intelligence suggesting they existed as a fact, just suspicion.

    They don't mean anything to you because you have a closed mind. You can't see that both parties are to blame. That Clinton thought there were WMD's, Madeline Albright thought there were WMD's, Sandy Berger thought there were WMD's, Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry thought there were WMD's, Nancy Pelosi thought there were WMD's, Senator Bob Graham thought there were WMD's, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, John Kerry, Jay Rockefeller, Henry Waxman, Hillary Clinton and countless other Democrats thought there were WMD's.

    And further, when the rubber met the road, 111 Democrats voted to give Bush the authority to invade Iraq.

    Nope. You, and others like you, hold firm to your completely baseless belief that President Bush acted autonomously and irrationally.

    What a complete waste of political thought.

    But both sides are going to twist it.

    See Fenton, He's 100% impeach Obama on this (which stems from his Absolute Democrat Hatred Syndrome)

    Getting the absolute truth on this is going to be nearly impossible in the short term.

    They relied on their useful idiots to push the meme that it was " A CONSPIRACY !!" and they relied on a subjective complicit media to perpetuate the protest lie.

    So, you either want the truth or you sink to their level.
    And this is exactly what Maggie was discussing.

    We say it here, it comes out there.

    Seriously, people are going to think I'm your puppet master if you keep doing this.

    How does Fenton being a reactionary change witness testimony?

    I don't see an impeachment movement out of this. You have to break the law, not make incredibly stupid and cowardly decisions, and we don't even know that Obama was the one that made the decision. Don't get me wrong, you'll get some who get upset and cry for it, but it's unrealistic so it goes nowhere.

    First, how do we know what that guy said is true and he had all the information?

    Second, people like Fenton are going to automatically assume it's true and attack anything that contradicts it.

    The mass "Impeach Obama" crowd on this isn't making it easier to actually get to the bottom.

    That is not true. Even today, knowing what we know, it is incredibly hard if not impossible to build an honest assessment that Iraq did not have WMD's out of the information that we had at the time. Even Saddam thought he had WMD, it turned out. You can make the claim that we went to war on an intelligence failure.... and that would have partial truth (we went to war for more than just WMD's), but the claim of lies is unsupportable, just as the claim that Obama wanted Ambassador Stevens and his security team dead would be unsupportable.
