    But, don't let facts get in the way of a good argument.
    So, post links to your 'facts' and we'll see what's what.

    Careful review of the facts often reveals the truth.

    Don't forget to include the state of the union prior to the invasion and the speech Bush gave to the nation on the eve of the invasion. Because that's when he told Americans the reasons we were going to war.

    Yes, as the war dragged on, these reasons seemed to magically change in speeches and statements from the WH. Go back an count the times WMD's were mentioned and you'll have a pretty accurate understanding of what we were told.

    Remember the Orwell book Animal Farm when the pigs kept changing the rules as they went along.

    Just today Cheney saw the need to throw George Tenet under the bus for not giving him correct information. Forgetting I guess that it is his responsiblilty to verify such information before acting on it in the name of America.

    Just as Cheney is yet again throwing our soldiers under the bus for being "rogue soldiers" and not acting within the boundries of the Bush administrations endorsments of EIT's.

    Not to suprising that not many in the military is coming to Dick's defense.

    I remember it like it was yesterday.

    Not to be diggin' up any bones, but I remember the propaganda build-up and the way they played the nation with their cherry-picked, manipulative truths and half truths, all cut and pasted together to get support for their Iraqi agenda. That was the Bush plan from Day 1, I believe. 9/11 just got in his way. The trick, to get back on course to the original plan to F'up Iraq was to somehow tie 9/11 and Iraq, hip-to-hip, in the minds of Americans. And that they did. All the way from the Congress-person to Joe Sh** the Rag Man.

    Everytime myself, or anybody stood up to point it out, we were outshouted, insulted, called everything in the book from traitor's to homo-lovin' liberals.

    Now 8 years later, most everybody has finally gotten a clue. Surprise, surprise. I suppose it's too late for a "neener-neener."

    Rather than 911 getting in the way of Bush's plans, I believe it helped them greatly. In Cheney's paper, Restoring America's Defenses, he wrote that doing a makeover in the Middle East would be impossible without a new "Pearl Harbor". Bush also knew what 911 would mean for his Middle East plans, and remarked after the attacks "I just hit the trifecta".

    Ya know Dana, that's the first I heard of this.

    I ain't defending Bush here, but I find it hard to believe that even Bush would say something THAT stupid.

    But then again.....

    Yea, that never happened.

    edit: Context is king:

    The President favors conditions of budgetary balance, and -- particularly looking ahead to the unfunded liabilities of our nation -- surplus, and the reduction of outstanding national debt against the day when those bills come due, and has been pursuing a balanced fiscal policy that included tax reduction for long-term growth, debt reduction, and moderate spending growth to make those first two objectives possible.

    He had always listed, throughout his campaign and since, the reasons why the nation might depart from this policy, reasons he had given as acceptable for running fiscal deficits: for war, recession, or emergency. As he said to me in mid-September, "Lucky me. I hit the trifecta."

    Mid September, right after the 911 attacks.
