The truth about Iraq
I am not sure the recent book on how the administration coerced intelligence services to corroborate the case to go to war with Iraq is all that earth shattering a disclosure. Cheney’s parade across the Potomac to strong arm analysts into telling us what he wanted to hear is well known. The public was fed a whopper the way Columbus lied to his crews about how far they had sailed in order to preempt a mutiny. Columbus is generally held in high regard, as evidenced by the national holiday in his name. While we are a long way from celebrating “W Day”, there is a good chance that the demise of Saddam’s despotic Baath regime will be replaced by republican institutions that will in time make Iraq a better place to live, raise a family, and explore and develop petroleum resources.
