    Check out wiki on the IPP report. No mention of Saddam's willingness to work with al Qaeda or his terrorist attacks.

    The fact you think wiki is a reliable source for things like this speaks for itself.

    I'm well aware thousands of articles written about Iraq are just as deliberately misinformed as you are.
    Another msitake you make repeatedly. Willingness to work doesn't mean he did work. You're trying to read his mind, and mindlessly assuming they would work with him. Remember they wouldn't. There was no working relationship.

    Again, please use your brain, wiki is just an overview site. Any search would give you much more.

    Again, I agree, we elected Bush. That does not excuse his actions. Responsiblity is only in one court. It seldom ever is. Bush is responsible for his own actions no matter who we elected.

    another failed mission:

    New Low for Obama on Afghanistan - The Numbers

    A record 49 percent of Americans now disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the situation in Afghanistan, up 8 points since January. And those who disapprove “strongly” outnumber strong approvers by nearly a 2-1 margin.

    With Obama holding his monthly national security meeting on Afghanistan today, the results show a significant drop in the president’s approval rating on handling the issue, down 12 points in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll from a year ago.

    The change follows an ABC/Post poll last month in which a new low, 31 percent, said the war in Afghanistan has been worth fighting. Sixty-four percent said it is not worth fighting, with 49 percent feeling that way “strongly,” both record highs in ABC/Post polls.

    Views on the war could impact Obama’s fortunes in the next election: Among those who disapprove of his handling of the situation, 70 percent say they will definitely not vote for him for re-election in 2012.
    how do YOU think we're doing in OBAMA'S WAR?

    when's the pullout, july is awfully close?

    why did WOODWARD say we were there?

    why do YOU think we're there?

    what's THE MISSION?

    war is a serious business, obama is oblivious

    party on, progressives

    The more one reads/hears/learns/sees about this conflict, the less comfortable one gets about it Euro advisers, weapons shipments, air support... basically, we are arming, training and providing air support to the next generation of militant Islamists. Jihadi for short

    Obama needs to pull his head out of his ass and let natural selection take its course in Libya

    today:

    P.J. Crowley is speaking out against President Barack Obama’ policies on the Middle East, charging his former boss with adopting an “inconsistency doctrine” on the region and urging intervention in Syria.

    Crowley, who stepped down as the State Department’s top spokesman last month, writes Friday that the Obama administration has yet to solidify its position on how to handle uprisings across the Arab world, but needs to do so. In particular, he calls for the president to get involved in the emerging conflict in Syria.

    “Although Obama seemed to embrace the concept of “responsibility to protect” in intervening in Libya and calling for Muammar Qadhafi to step down from power, he has not done the same in Syria,” Crowley says in a column published by The Daily Beast. “If Qadhafi must go because he is unwilling to reform and has employed extreme state-controlled violence against a population that no longer fears him, so should President Bashar al-Assad.”

    Crowley’s view is one that many administration observers, foreign policy experts and members of Congress have taken, but this is the first time it has been voiced by someone who was, until recently, privy to high-level deliberations.
