The case for going to war against Iraq was a fraud "made up in Texas" to give Republicans a political boost, Sen. Edward Kennedy said today.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Kennedy also said the Bush administration has failed to account for nearly half of the $4 billion the war is costing each month. He said he believes much of the unaccounted-for money is being used to bribe foreign leaders to send in troops.

He called the Bush administration's current Iraq policy "adrift."

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

Seems the Kennedy'd ought to make up their minds.

Saying that and actually attacking and occupying a sovereign country while killing thousands of civilians and troops is VERY different.

Hypocrisy? One can believe that Saddam is dangerous and had many WMD , yet realize that starting an unjust war is the wrong way to handle it.
(Oh yes...he was sooo dangerous and had so many weapons...we've seen PROOF of that during this war! :LOL)

Violence, death and destruction are not the only solution to problems, no matter what the Shrub said to convince of all his followers to support this attack and occupation- and admitting that Saddam is evil does not preclude one from not supporting war, which, as Kennedy rightly said is a FRAUD.
