    So they were " patriotic " back in the late 90s too ?

    When they publicly warned Americans of the threat from Saddam's WMDs ?

    No, he can't and it's nothing more than laziness when these people can't even make a half-hearted search for the truth. Of course 'the truth' often holds little interest for them as well. once their feelings are firmly entrenched. Laurence H. Silberman: The Dangerous Lie That

    Do you agree that we helped create democracies in Germany, Japan, and South Korea? We left troops behind in those nations. We did not leave troops behind in South Vietnam....and they fell to the North Vietnamese communists. We did not leave troops behind in Iraq. It should not be hard to work out that when you spill that much blood in a war, and you achieve victory, you have a right and duty to remain at some level until the new government is capable of keeping the peace.

    That's true but Obama can still not name them the aggressors. Nor did he call the latest Egyptian victims Christians, despite them be selected for murder only because of that fact.

    Obama is treating the American people like children and, it seems, with some justification.

    Without recognizing that AQin Iraq was an ongoing threat to the country and in fact ignoring that radical islamists even exist, how could we not have expected this to happen?

    If you remember Clinton got the U.N. to take care of Saddam's WMD's without invading Iraq. The U.N. inspectors did a good job at it too. There were no WMD's for Bush to find.

    Your source is completely cornball. You have been cornered on the issue and you are attempting to find an article, any article that uses the words "bush lied" as an escape route. It's time for you to man up and speak for yourself. If you are so certain that Bush lied, produce one and talk about it specifically. I would expect to be asked to do the same if I state that Obama lies.

There is far too much evidence that GW ignored CIA warnings and allowed 911 to happen for the purpose of invading Iraq. He also lied to the American people about his ambitions which was to oust Saddam from day one of his Presidency.
    Now you are completely distorting the history of what happened, but because of all the disinformation out there you can't be held totally responsible.

    All the politicians who believed Saddam had WMD got their information from the same sources, including the CIA and other foreign agencies as well. Surely you don''t believe that all this talk of Saddam and WMD's began with George Bush, do you?

    For the life of me I can't figure out what the President is playing at. What good is there in not naming the aggressors? He is tacitly lumping moderate Muslims in with the bad guys when he refuses to call it radical Islam. He does the moderates a disservice by implying that it's all one big undifferentiated pot of Muslims that we are referring to when we say "radical Islam". The moderates need support and leadership as much as the radicals need to be wiped out.
