    From the article

    "In late February 2004, Christopher Carney made an astonishing discovery. "

    You are saying that this discovery of a link 1 year after the start of the war was justification?

    Isn't that stretching it a bit? Though it does fit in well with pre-emptive attack.

    The reasons we went are tenuous at best. Articles like the one referenced here do not change that fact.

    Yet, at this point it doesn't matter why we went. What matters is that now that we are there the lives lost are not wasted. The US took on a role of defeating a dictator and installing democracy. Lets get the job done. Lets do the job right.

    Did you notice that after Bush testified at the closed 9-11 hearings, we haven't heard another word about it? Do you think he might have produced evidence that is sensitive in nature and it shut them up? things that make you go hmmmmm.

    Oh yeah BTW I heard it right out of Dan "the ultimate liberal" Rathers mouth about two or three months ago (keep in mind that I am paraphrasing) "Today there was evidence found of Al Queda training camps in Iraq". Thyen nothing. because of the medias liberal bias.

    The head of the 911 commission has reported, just like the Pres. and administration has always aserted, SH's Iraq did not have connection to 911 BUT DID have connections to Al Quiada.

    Watch and wonder how the media will under-report this assertion, and over report the no connection to 911, sure glad there is no media bias.

    Did no one read that Putin's intelligence alerted us after 9-11, and before the invasion of Iraq, that Hussein planned attacks against us at home and abroad?

    The only people IN THE WORLD that believe Sadam H. and his group was not a threat to the US is the American LEFT!

    Selective blindness... I only see things that make America look bad. I only see how America is the threat. We are all so bad....

    History will judge GW in a positeve light as one of our greatest presidents. For his vision and for his action. Not always popular but certainly the right thing to do!

    I just can't beleive how people can ignore information all over the place. They ignore connections, they ignore job gains and an economy that is booming, they blame Bush when gas prices rise and then give him no credit when they start falling. They blame him for not involving the UN when infact a. He went to the UN first and got 1442, b. Let the UN debate it all the while the French are telling SH hide your stuff here comes USA we will stall them as long as we can. c. the only reason the UN left Iraq was because of one car bomb, not because we asked them to leave. d. The UN just passed a unanimous resolution recognizing the new Iraq government (I thought it was going to be our new attempt at colonialism?).


    Move.on. ought to be called, We Ignore. org!

    I hope in this next election a vast majority of the American people stand up and vote to burry the American Left. It is certainly yet to be seen, but I hope and pray for that outcome. The only problem is they would probably ignore that too.:rolleyes:

    To those that think that we were lied to I would like to post some quotes made by some of your favorite people. The quotes have been "snoped" so I know they are correct. Have fun chewing on these, and try hard to come up with some explanation.

    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998.

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.

    "There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
    Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
    Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction. "[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ...
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

    NOW THE DEMOCRATS SAY PRESIDENT BUSH LIED, THAT THERE NEVER WERE ANY WMD'S AND HE TOOK US TO WAR FOR HIS OIL BUDDIES??? Right!!!
