William Kristol and his hilariously inept mouthpiece The Weakly [oopsey] Standard, or as I regard it as the Necons shriveled organ, publishes a pile of tripe by those liars extraordinaire Dick n Liz.
If you must read it then you can find it in all its perfidy here
I'll put a few low-lights below:
It is also undisputed that Saddam Hussein had the technology, equipment, facilities, and scientists in place to construct the world’s worst weapons. We know he intended to reconstitute these programs as soon as the international sanctions regime collapsed.Translation from neodrivel: The sanctions were working we had to lie our way in.
Leaving Saddam in power after 9/11, in light of the threat he posed, would have been, as Tony Blair has noted, an act of political cowardice. We are not saying Saddam was responsible for 9/11.Translation from neodrivel: Dammit but we would really like to so we will say so anyway then deny we said it.
Against the weight of historical evidence, some critics claim the Bush administration manufactured or exaggerated the intelligence about Saddam’s weapons programs. The charge doesn’t stand up against the facts.Translation from neodrivel: We cant handle the truth so we will make shit up.
The war to liberate Iraq was indisputably difficult. It included tragedy and challenges we did not foresee.Translation from neodrivel: We fucked up and everything we were warned about has happened.
There are three pages of utter tripe, where they twist and turn and play with truth as if it was the banjo from deliverance. Read it if you will, in the end I regarded it as a piece from the Onion and howled laughing.
