But the Bush Administration really believed Saddam had WMD!

Am I the only one who sick of hearing this bullshit statement? I doubt it, so I think I need to demonstrate--once and for all--that the Bush Administration deliberately lied to get us to goto war in Iraq.

Let me start off by stating that I actually agreed with the Iraq War, at first. I believed in what the Administration said and I also believed that we should have never propped up Saddam in the first place. I even spoke badly about the protestors and said they were only protesting because they didn't like Bush. I later realized this was not the case.

Once I found out that the Bush Administration lied to get us to goto war I was completely against the war in Iraq. Never, EVER, should the President lie to the population in order to gather support for a war. It is inexcusable.

Bush and Company knew that the only way to gather enough support to goto war with Iraq would be to claim that Iraq was an imminent threat to us. So they decided to use fake documents, imply falsehoods, and outright lie. Of course this worked in the short run, but as anyone can now see the support for the war has greatly fallen.

On top of all this, there is irrefutable proof that key figures in the Bush Administration KNEW that Saddam wasn't even a threat to his neighbors, let alone the US.

Colin Powell - February 2001

"[Saddam] has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbours."

Condoleezza Rice - July 2001

"We are able to keep arms from [Saddam]. His military forces have not been rebuilt."

Clearly these two knew that Saddam didn't have WMD and that he wasn't a threat. I find it hard to believe that neither Powell, nor Rice expressed these opinions to the other members.

I just really don't understand how anyone can actually think that the Administration really believed Saddam had WMD.

Even my brother-in-law, who is an independent voter and Bush supporter, admits that he thinks the Administration deliberately lied to get us to goto war with Iraq.

It is about time that the rest of you stopped living in denial.

They obviously lied to get the needed support for their ideological agenda.
