    I'm simply showing you that there was intelligence and warning Bin Laden was attempting to strike at the US.

    Please, I suppose you're going to tell us it was for the oil, when everyone KNOWS there was never any guarantee that WE would even receive any of it. That theory is MORE silly than the WMD theory.

    To try to say that there were definitely NOT WMD in Iraq before the invasion is just displaying ignorant partisanship. There MAY have been WMDs, and there IS evidence to suggest that.
    THAT'S JUST RIGHT WING GARBAGE, GOP CONGRESS EVEN AGREED IT WAS GARBAGE

    The ONLY evidence was Reagan provided WMD's to Saddam but they had degraded by the time Bush CHOOSE to invade!

    NOT:

    Bush to briefer: "All right. You've covered your ass, now."

Where do you think those weapons came from? These are stockpiles that the government has allegedly been using against it's people.

    LOL, Yes, keep up the RIGHT WING MYTHS

    Satellite IMAGES are NOT right wing garbage. Neither is any of the other evidence I posted. However, ALL of the witnesses and people who reported that there were WMD had suffered character assassination. That certainly does NOT mean they were lying.

    So I guess it's just a coincidence that the Bush Administration placed multiple authors of the PNAC in his cabinet, and made a beeline for Iraq after 9/11.
