THIS IS HUGE!!I think this is bigger news than the big three issue. Having George Bush admit that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and if he had it to do over ...we would not have gone to war. Here is the transcript from the interview with Charlie Gibson
...."Bush: The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq. A lot of people put their reputations on the line and said, you know ... the weapons of mass destruction is a reason to remove Saddam Hussein. It wasn't just people in my administration, and um ... You know, that's not a do-over, but I wish the intelligence had been different, I guess.
Gibson: If the intelligence had been right, would there have been an Iraq war?
Bush: If he had had weapons of mass destruction, would there have been a war? Absolutely.
Gibson: No, if you had known he didn't.
Bush: Oh, I see what you're saying. Uh ... You know, that's an interesting question. That is a do-over I can't do. It's hard for me to speculate."
I have watched listened to many many very knowledgable people try and justify invading Iraq from the WMD perspective....which is the only legitamate possible reason. Those who fall back on "Saadam needed to be removed", "he was evil", or "we must liberate and bring democracy to those poor people" are the the religous right wingnuts that show up at Palin rally's yelling "Nigger", "Arab",and "drill baby drill", and like a crack head they see a terrorist on every corner.
"(CBS) In the aftermath of Sept. 11, President Bush ordered his then top anti-terrorism adviser to look for a link between Iraq and the attacks, despite being told there didn't seem to be one. "
Bush really threw a lot of his more intelligent supporters under the Bus with his "do over theory". The list of Bush insiders like Cheney,Powell,Condoleeza,Rumsfeld..etc. etc who stood up promising evidence of WMD's, Proof positive! Time went on and ...NADA,ZIP,Goose Egg.
