  •  I fucking KNEW while he was delivering this (6+ / 0-)

    "intelligence" that it was the thinnest damned thing I'd ever seen. I couldn't believe he was trying to peddle this war on this flimsy material.

    If a lawyer defended me with material like this I'd call him an idiot who was trying to put me in prison.

      Here's part of what he actually put in front of the UN. These drawings were made based on information given  by "Curveball,' an unbelievable fabulist that the CIA had been warned and re-warned about. Curvball later recanted his whole story
      never the less, the information this fabulist provided was the basis for the cartoons Powell took to the UN, as seen below. No wonder he feels ashamed, he probably did when he went to the UN but covered it up out of a sense of duty to GWB. Unfortunately for the US, his duty was to the US, not Bush, which duty he consciously abdicated
