    ElBaradei Wants Bush Probe

    So Mohamed ElBaradei wants a probe in to the Bush white for the actions that led to the Iraq war. I think it's high time something like this happened. If we became aware of another countries leaders engaging in such a gross act of malfeasance we wouldn't hesitate to cry foul. Double standard much?

    ElBaradei suggests war crimes probe of Bush team

    Are you somehow insinuating that the Muslim Brotherhood is linked to all of Islam across the world, and doesn't just represent an isolated group with radical beliefs? If so then YOU should probably go do some reading about the Muslim brotherhood.

    Frankly everyone in this thread who is equating Muslim's with terrorists disturbs me seriously. You get crazy Christian terrorists that crop up and these same people don't say "Christian terrorists" are responsible. They say "crazy" people did it.... and yet when it's someone from another country with another religion they don't understand that there are billions (yes billions) of normal, moral, law abiding followers, and select groups of crazies.

    It has already happened. Back in 2004. 7 years ago.

    The left didn't like the result and that's probably why you never heard of it.

    Pull your head out of the lefty media and wake up.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    Not really true. The entire thing was never really addressed, and we did have the determination that Fieth inappropriately used intel, which would lead us down another Bush path if we wanted to go that way.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: ElBaradei Wants Bush Probe

    What I have never gotten over is how one of the world's best intelligence forces was so completely wrong about a dictator who had--in the latter years--mostly been a romance writing recluse. Unless, of course--they wanted to be wrong.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: ElBaradei Wants Bush Probe

    There is no credible evidence that President Bush launched the war with full knowledge that Iraq did not possess WMD and did not pose any threat to U.S.
    I dont have full knowledge that there arent gnomes stealing my underwear. I'd better invade under the bed...

    Some people were fired, evidence was ostensibly 'manufactured'. Look at a picture long enough you can make it look like you want.

    Faced with the same situation and responsibility, Clinton, Gore and even Obama would have done the same thing.

    "Another attack"

    When was the first time Hussein attacked?

    Re: Former U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspector: "GW Bush should face criminal investigati

    I have what I feel is an interesting perspective on this issue. I watched the entire run-up to the Iraq war on Free Speech TV.

    I had a lot of it recorded, but lost the drive it was on. Nevertheless, I watched that channel debunk and challenge the entire spectacle.

    From the first conflation. I can't remember if it was Al Qaida and Iraq or Iraq and 9-11. But I remember they called.shenanigans and announced they were leading is to war. And they did.

    They said over and over and over that Hussein was contained. I saw documentaries that predated the conflict and journalism at the time directly challenging the Bush WH's narrative. And ya know what? They were right.

    They even reported on the possibility that Hussein was lying to bluff his enemies.

    I watched hours of this at work, and much of it was from sources like the BBC. German television. Award winning documentaries and journalism. Very very left, non mainstream media. So left it makes claims of liberal bias laughable.

    And right. Completely right. No WMDs worth counting. Contained. No threat.

    Just thought id throw that in, as that channel was only on Dish Network and most people I talk to haven't even heard of it. Not even sure if its still on the air.

    The takeaway is, I SAW credible sources challenging the validity.of the evidence being presented during the runup as it was being presented. Former inspectors clarifying what they actually saw as opposed to how their reports were being spun. All the way to the invasion, and after.

    They busted the Jessica Lynch story immediately, I knew days before it broke in the MM.

    I know what I saw with my own eyes. I do not believe they went into Iraq in good faith. Bush may have been duped by people he trusted. But Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al? Guilty as sin.

    I believe the weapons were there. Chemical rounds were found. But not in the numbers that would have made any difference. I believe the Iraqi landscape holds many secrets. And probably will continue to for many years.
