Just a snippet:

Some American officials have all but conceded that the weapons of mass destruction campaign was simply a means to an end - a "global show of American power and democracy", as ABC News in the US put it. "We were not lying," it was told by one official. "But it was just a matter of emphasis."

Now where's that puke emoticon?...Joyce in the mts.

From the article:

Quote:
Mr Powell and Mr Bush both repeated last week that Iraq had WMDs. But one official said privately that "in the end, history and the American people will judge the US not by whether its officials found canisters of poison gas or vials of some biological agent [but] by whether this war marked the beginning of the end for the terrorists who hate America".
Oh, can't you hear the whisper of doublespeak getting louder and louder?

Here's one for me, too: :Puke

Can you imagine where we'd be now if we didn't at least have internet access and use it?

Methinks we'd be sheep just like the rest of them.

Another bit of mendacity. Bechtel, awarded those contracts to rebuild Iraq without the inconvenience of competitive bidding, unlike Iraq, seems to have links with Al Qaeda. It seems the Bin Laden's have investment ties with Bechtel according to the New Yorker.

But wait there's more....

Yes and interestingly... didn't Mr. Bin Laden have a few wishes?

1. Saddam out of Iraq
2. United States out of Saudi Arabia
3. Cultural clash

Hmmm!

You think American oil "royalty" might have business with Saudis?

Just curious...Joyce in the mts.
