Big shocker: no WMDs in Iraq
Hold on to your seats:
The U.S-led team hunting for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has not found any stockpiles of biological or chemical weapons, but will keep searching the country, CIA adviser David Kay said on Thursday."Serious constraints of time"? The only time limit was self-imposed by a petulant Bush eager to get his war on. And those "intelligence judgments" were not made by professionals -- the CIA or DIA, but by political hacks out of the Pentagon.
There's no excuse for the lies and deceptions employed by the administration to justify their war.
What's worse, despite the international prestige, money, and lives that have been wasted in this endeavour, Bush refuses to admit defeat.
The Bush administration is seeking more than $600 million from Congress to continue the hunt for conclusive evidence that Saddam Hussein's government had an illegal weapons program, officials said Wednesday.In other words, $1 billion spent for this folly -- this figment of the Neocon's imagination, this snipe hunt under the hot Iraqi sun.
