    wanted to attack Iraq and overthrow Saddam. This was another step up from Bill Clinton's use of the CIA in their unsuccessful efforts to do a regime change despite having accomplished successful regime changes in Iraq in 1963 and again in 1968.

    9/11 provided the opportunity for a propaganda blitz. The corporate media was shown to be little more than a tool for the power elite and the sheep are easily fooled. The decision to take out Saddam had been made. It was simply a matter of "fixing the facts around the policy".

    The best justification they could come up with was WMDs. And so it was. Aggressive war, war crimes, no worries.

    America's vital national interests were at stake.
