Chalabi Got What He Wanted--The WMD Lies? As President Bush Said: 'So What's the Difference?'
"Our objective has been achieved. That tyrant Saddam is gone, and the Americans are in Baghdad. What was said before is not important."
So sayeth Ahmad Chalabi--puller of Bush administration strings
heroes in error!"
*"....And I am the hero of skimming off the financial benefits of our error!""
Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and our Commander-in-Chief....these are only a few the "dreamteam dupes of Chalabi" who led America down the path to unnecessary war. I'm not certain if this sin against the American people can ever be forgiven.
"Now maybe, just maybe, Saddam's capture will start a virtuous circle in Iraq. Maybe the insurgency will evaporate; maybe the cost to America, in blood, dollars and national security, will start to decline.We're heroes in untrustworthy recklessness!
But even if all that happens, we should be deeply disturbed by the history of this war. For its message seems to be that as long as you wave the flag convincingly enough, it doesn't matter whether you tell the truth."
