The underlying buzz for the past week seems to be drawing a bead on the Bush administration for misleading us as to the existence of Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Not that this is a huge surprise to me. Many have been saying all along that the WMDs were all hype. But now everyone seems to be getting in on the act.
Let's face it. George W. is a lying sack of shit. Clinton may have been impeached by the House of Representatives for Perjury and Obstruction of Justice, but Dubya seems pretty determined to go down the way Nixon did for Abuse of Power. Lying about getting a blowjob from someone who's not your wife is chump change compared to lying to an entire nation (and the world) in order to start a war.
I can totally agree with what you are saying, as I've said the same many, many times myself.
I believe some people have issues with accepting Bush's crimes as fact because they have to justify why they voted for him and have supported him through his BS term in office. They cannot afford to lose face now, so they simply hide behind 9/11 as their reasoning for undying support of a criminal.
