We Just Can't Find Em! ;(
We know this already and just because the governments (US and UK) will not admit they told fibs to get us into a war does not make the truth easier to handle. Fibs about WMD's. Bush fibs
about African nuclear materials being sold to Iraq.
I just keep thinking of that poor fooker who just came out of a coma
after 20 years to find that although the cold war is over the world (mostly in the last twenty years because of some member of the Bush family "dynasty") is a far more dangerous place.
Click your heals Dorothy... lets go back to Kansas.
The U.S. administration has abruptly revised its explanation for invading Iraq, as Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld asserted that a changed perspective after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — not fresh evidence of banned weapons — provoked the war.
"The coalition did not act in Iraq because we had discovered dramatic new evidence of Iraq's pursuit of weapons of mass murder," Mr. Rumsfeld testified yesterday before the Senate armed services committee.
"We acted because we saw the evidence in a dramatic new light, through the prism of our experience on 9/11."
It was an about-face from a man who confidently proclaimed in January: "There's no doubt in my mind but that they [the Iraqi government] currently have chemical and biological weapons." (He was seconded in March by Vice-President Dick Cheney, who said of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein: "We believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.")
And in London Thursday, the BBC reported senior British government sources saying that Whitehall had virtually ruled out finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which they now believe were destroyed or hidden permanently before the war began.
