You can count on THIS, though - none of those creeps will EVER be honest with the American public on why they ran their campaign of disinformation to get congress to pass the resolution allowing Bush to start the war.

The fact that Condi would shamelessly fall back on this discredited and weakest of premises for launching the absolute dumbest and least justified act of agression in US history should surprise no one.

The fact that it's trumpeted as some kind of "victory" by a right wing blog like newsbusters is about as significant as Al Franken pointing out the fact that Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot.

PS: holiday neeners
It seems some people prefer lies which confirm their ideological idiocy compared to the truth. That's why Rice lies, yet again, and the idiots eat it up.

Love Condi. She is one well spoken, classy, intelligent lady. Couric? Not so much.

Katie Couric is the biggest idiot left wing media chump that I have ever seen. I never liked her and honestly have to say she makes my skin crawl just listening to her voice and watching her facial expressions.

Rice led the interview and put Couric right in her place. Couric came away from that interview looking worse than I have ever seen her.
stayinformed40 !!! ... Precisely !

It was indeed quite obvious for all to witness ... that the exceptional intellect of Ms. Rice was head and shoulders above that of the seemingly clueless and acutely arrogant Ms. C.

Ms. Rice is absolutely a "Breath Of Fresh Air" and without doubt a true "Intellectual" ... The American People would benefit greatly from the political services of this vastly qualified lady.

"President Rice", now that absolutely has a very nice sound to it ... does it not ???

Quite the difference between the "Pseudo Intellectual" in the old Yankee WH and the "Factual Intellectual" Ms. R ... "Ain't Nothing Like The real Thing Baby" !

I agree, Condi Rice is well spoken, classy, and intelligent woman. Disagree, I think Katie Couric is also. Palin, well hmmmm.

These are known facts, maybe you should expand your sources or possibly pick up a credible history book on the run up to the invasion.

Good question, what video were you watching? Rice said that they werent sure when Saddam would get WMD, whether it might be in one year or several years.
Now some people have been arguing that since he had chemical and bilogical weapons, that this proves he has WMD. But I think most would agree that the decision to go to war was over the question of whether he had nukes.

But the preponderance of intelligence analysis -- the preponderance of intelligence analysis from around the world was that he had had weapons of mass destruction.

Thank you - that supports exactly what I said and debunks what you said. According to the world, not just Bush or cheney, but the whole world, he had them. Of course no one could be 100% sure because saddam kicked out the inspectors and violated every UN resolution against Iraq.

The known fact is that IRAQ HAD NO WMDs WHEN BUSH INVADED. They didn't know. They flat-azz guessed. They launched a pre-emptive war based on their desires, not on good intel.

It was the dumbest, least justified act of aggression in US history. The entire world knows it.

And here you are, 8 years later, trying to defend it.

double neeners.
No, they didn't guess. Based on all the evidence and intelligence around the world, everyone thought he had them, even Clinton, Biden, Hillary and virtually every other democrat. So there.

Isn't she though?

She would make a very appealing candidate. Her debating skills are wonderful, she is confident, articulate and very intelligent.

What a most pathetic figure.

She did all she could to engage this country into what was going to be
a devastating war for either sides.

Now she admits, OK we were wrong but we didnít know at the time.

And she still finds the strength to breathe, and she dares to appear in public. !!!

Except Germany, France, and Russia. Who said very pointedly that he didn't. And they were right.

Bush, Cheney, and Rice guessed and they got it 180 degrees wrong. That or they DID know and they flat out lied every step of the way. The proof is common knowledge. Stop being silly.

Who had only the intel that Bush released to them. I was convinced, too. As was the vast majority of the American public. That's what happens when our leadership sets out to deceive us about our very safety. We tend to take threats to our existence seriously. When our leadership paints a picture of impending doom, we tend to listen to that warning.

You're trying to convince people that what happened didn't. It's too close to xmas for that kind of behavior young lady.

At least Colin Powell quit lying.

Course, he still ain't telling what he knows.
