This is a debate up until today on whether Bush purposely mislead the nation into agreeing with the invasion.

Absolutely. With the help of Mossad his regime set up the 9/11 attacks that eventually led to the invasion of both Iraq and Afghanistan. I know most will say I am crazy etc but I don't care. I know what I know is the truth.Every living president should be tried for war crimes and genocide.

Apparently Bush was a genius then, because every damn Democrat in Washington believed that Iraq had WMDs. This included both Clinton's.

I'm not sure if he did. But he may be culpable even if he didn't. I think that at the very least he ultimately didn't care whether Saddam was amassing the WMD he was accused of doing. That is problematic enough.

Ahh yes, the dichotomy of it all. Too stupid to be President but so smart he outwitted all the genius level and Rhodes Scholars members of Congress.

I don't necessarily think that Bush did. I think Bush actually thought that he was keeping the country safe.

His underlings however? From Cheney on down, i never trusted any of them. I don't think they had good motives.

Bush is stupid. Cheney was the mastermind liar behind it.


Cheney lies on Iraq-Al Qaeda ties - YouTube

At the least, he did not look especially hard to find contradictory evidence. He didn't order a full top-down review involving different independent agencies to ensure that whatever "evidence" he had been given up to that time was actually valid. He didn't fulfill his duty to interrogate the main proponents for war and make them defend their "theory of the case." He didn't invite skeptics to present their case. He didn't involve himself in any kind of careful weighing of the evidence. He had a goal in mind (topple Saddam), and that's what he did, doubters and dissenters be damned.

Whether or not he "lied," he sure failed to do much "due diligence."

For that matter, I think the same was true of Clinton in the run-up to the Kosovo war. However, to Clinton's credit, he never tried to stage a ground-invasion of mainland Serbia.
