    At the time, in the face of all the evidence and whistleblowing, nothing was stopping that train of Hubris, and the defense was always "Saddam Hussein and his regime are known liars..."  So to be told that from their own Intelligence Agency, it's just too easy for Bush to dismiss...

    I think only history can convict them now.

    •  It wasn't just US intelligence. (7+ / 0-)

      The UN, UNMOVIC, was on the ground, in Iraq, with total access, finding nothing.  Their "intelligence" was known in March of 2003. They found, essentially, nothing.  It doesn't matter what  some numbskull with ulterior motives or someone tortured into "confession" said previously, when subsequent, real time, real actual investigation, contemporaneously, finds nothing.  

      Yes only history will convict them, but we must make sure they don't "Reagan" this in an attempt to rehabilitate.
