One-books and records are always reviewed before they are released. Two, why doesn't the Right admit that Bush lied and lied and lied. The truth shall set us all free, and it's coming finally and very slowly after these 5 years. Stay tuned for more as the cookie continues to crumble.
This isn't a war on 9/11 perpetrators, nor is it a war on Al Quaeda. It's a war on terrorism. Iraq harbored terrorists, no doubt about it. We promised to attack terrorists and those who harbored them. And don't forget the Gulf War. Iraq isn't about one thing, it's about many things. Sure, Bush used 9/11 emotion for support in what needed to be done anyway. What's wrong with that ?
"It's a war on terrorism. Iraq harbored terrorists, no doubt about it."
If we can invade a country for harboring terrorists, there are at least 8 countries that did this more than Iraq (Iran, Syria, Tunisia, Lybia, Lebanon, North Korea, Sudan, Somalia). So why was Iraq first on the line? "Hubris" shows that it was a personal vendetta.
That's nuts. You don't know the Presidents personal thoughts. In addition, if they continue to harbour terrorists we do need to step up the pressure on the countries you listed. If we are not involved in their world they most certainly will be in ours. Iran knows the importance of Iraq so much that it is sending in it's own terroists to keep up the turmoil. Don't be so naive.
Doug, if the standard is that we need to know "personal thoughts" before deciding the truth of something, then we can't know anything. That's the purpose of journalistic enterprises like "Hubris." The questions are about the persuasiveness of the evidence presented, and the quality of the reasoning used to draw conclusions.
People who show so little inclination toward critical thought probably shouldn't accuse other people of naiveté.
