    Seems to me that this is up to -you- to determine and then illustrate, as -you- made the claim.

    But you won't, because you know you can't. You'll continue to simply dodge the issue, like you're trying to do with your response, above.

    One has to wonder, how you can make the claim tha GWB was manipulated of you did not have that proof at hand?

    Clinton had other doodles on his papers.
    Uncovered a couple years ago; revealing his priorities:

    Meh, I doubt Bush was intelligent enough to co ordinate a war on Islam, look how he screwed up Iraq and Afghanistan not to mention Katrina.

    Seems nothing to me, just a few scribblings. If US wanted a crusade, i'm sure they would have brought more pitch forks

    Re: Donald Rumsfeld covered Iraq briefing papers with Biblical texts

    First of all, Donald Rumsfeld was against water boarding. Just so you all know.

    Once the government of the United States decided to invade Iraq it was the president's job to sell it to the people.

    It wasn't his job to say things like, "well, Frank over at CIA says that Saddam doesn't have any WMDs but Charley and Pete and Liz say it's a slam dunk that he has them. I'm not sure who to believe. I'm so apprehensive."

    I think a lot of people live far far away from the real world.

    Of all the things the president should not "sell", war would top the list to my mind.

    Eh. The Islamic Fascists hate us as it is and most of the Arab and Muslim populations don't like us. What's a little more in terms of why they shouldn't tolerate us? It's kind of at the point where the bucket of water is so full that adding another drop is immaterial.

    I don't vouch for that site, but it does appear that Rummy did not approve the category of interrogation techniques that water boarding fell into.

    That is why I have learned to ask for a source before I jump on some one. Thanks, and that is the one(and only) good thing I can think of about Rumsfeld.

    That's just not the way it works. Never has worked that way. The people have to be behind the effort or it won't work. The president can't come off all wobbly and weak when we're about to attack another country. He didn't tell us anything that he himself wasn't told. There was six months of diplomacy once he had permission to invade.
