President Bush did a poor job in getting information such as this out to the public. One of his glaring weaknesses was to take too many punches from the left and not strike back.

Bush had to be a little gun shy, having already been so screwed by faulty intelligence.

Besides, these shells never constituted the stockpiles that we expected to find.

We know the reason now for the intelligence failure ...Saddam Hussein himself. He was behind the false stories to keep Iran in check. He just never counted on Bush kicking his ass.

He sure paid for that mistake.

I agree. I love George W., and I think he was a great President for the times that we were (and are) in. Remember, he was a clean and fresh contrast to Clinton and his scandals. He was soon made a wartime president, and he did an outstanding job of defending this country. But, he didn’t speak up to defend himself as much as he should have when he was personally attacked...especially toward the end of his presidency.

Of course there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and, of course Saddam was thumbing his nose at the treaty. Bush did the right thing to go into Iraq, and the liberal media had a field day attacking him. They would have attacked any decision he made in order to gain power for themselves. He just needed to defend himself more. Perhaps he felt that he did what he had to do, and that time and history would vindicate his decisions.
