Your Republican government

Link 1

The memo also shows that the president and the prime minister acknowledged that no unconventional weapons had been found inside Iraq. Faced with the possibility of not finding any before the planned invasion, Mr. Bush talked about several ways to provoke a confrontation, including a proposal to paint a United States surveillance plane in the colors of the United Nations in hopes of drawing fire, or assassinating Mr. Hussein.

American intelligence agencies and presidential commissions long ago concluded that Saddam Hussein had no unconventional weapons and no substantive ties to Al Qaeda before the 2003 invasion.

But now, an unusual experiment in public access is giving anyone with a computer a chance to play intelligence analyst and second-guess the government.

Bush knew there were no WMD. Bush* publicly said there were WMD. Bush pulled the UN inspectors out and invaded Iraq.

No WMD were found. Bush* said that everyone thought they were there. Official reports said, nope, no WMD. Reports also said that there were questions about the evidence that was offered in public.

Bush said he would have still invaded if he knew there were no WMD. And, as stated before, he knew there were no WMD.

Now, Hackstra orchestrates this document dump. "Go find those WMD," is the mandate from Hackstra to the bloggers.

So, instead of facing up to this colossal and tragic mistake that it is our invasion and occupation of Iraq, we have an official government action meant to confuse the issue all over again.

Ladies and gentlemen, your Republican government.

*(or others in his administration - I'm not interested in splitting hairs here)
