The Jig is Up!
Lets review, shall we? Shortly after 9/11, we heard hints about the involvement of Iraq in the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. The story quickly developed into the claim, by the Bush administration, that Iraqi intelligence played a large part in Bin Laden's plan. It was an important piece in the justification to go to war with Iraq.
Now we are left with a report that there was no link between Iraq and Al-Qaeda. The report mentions that, if anything, Hussein and his government were scared of Al-Qaeda, and purposely kept there distance. This begs the question: WHY IN THE WORLD DID WE GO TO WAR WITH IRAQ?
Of course, the Republican Establishment media, Rush Limbaugh and his wanna-bes, have spent their day spinning this and have decided to respond to this news by saying, and I quote, "so what?"
So what??!! So if there was no link, then we were lied to about Iraqi Intel helping Bin Laden.
So what??!! So if there was no link, then this isn't a part of the war on terror.
This is the final nail in the coffin of Bushes failed foreign policy. While he's busy attacking a sovereign nation for no benefit in the war on terror:
- Bin Laden still runs loose
- North Korea launches missiles at Hawaii
- Iran thumbs their nose at us
2500 dead. Thousands more wounded. Almost a million soldiers committed. Billions of tax dollars spent.
All for a war that we now know means NOTHING. Nothing.
It is time to bring the troops home, thank them for their service. Honor the dead. Heal the wounded, and hold their leaders accountable once and for all.
It's time for conservatives to be . . . conservative.
