  •  Watergate quiz (none)
    You have a point.  But there's still a case to be made here.

    Quiz:

    When were the "smoking gun" tapes on Watergate released?  1970s?  1996? 2002?

    •  That's about what it would take (none)
      It would take Bush doing something totally vile on video to break the unconcious swayable middle out of their slumber long enough to move this.

      I don't think this is a smoking gun.  It validates what we all know happened.  It doesn't convince the sheeple though.  The part of the memo about the intel being fixed to the desired conclusion is foreign opinion.  Without a Congress doing it's oversight job we are left with nothing here.

      Viewed with dumbass repub glasses the memo looks like this:  "Bush prepared for the eventuality of going into Iraq.  He did this because Iraq would not respond unless they reaaaally knew they were going to get a devistating attack this time.  The way Bush convinced him of this was by actively planning and trimming out all grey areas.  He wanted allies to also believe he was resolute to do it so word would get back to Hussein.  Bush was forced into going into Iraq because weak kneed allies were going soft and doing business with them.  He knew he had a limited time window before allies actively sided with Hussein."

      •  but.... (none)
        Let the wingers make that far-fetched case.

        We have a document written by the British foreign secretary that says there was no legal case for war and so one had to be invented.
