The Administration is not run by inexperienced children. Its leaders are well aware of the limitations and uncertainties which accompany all intelligence.
This statement is reasonable in that it describes an awareness of limitations and uncertainties in general. But no generalization is 100%. Therefore no presidential administration will be aware of each and every instance of faulty intelligence, especially when the intelligence community has been infiltrated, as in this case, with cowardly traitors who are directed by their very ideology to work through deception and fraud.
That is, your statement contains no refutation of the assertion that the Bush administration was not aware of the doubts in the intelligence leading to the Iraq war.
"What really upset me more than anything else was that there were people in the intelligence community that had doubts about some of this sourcing, but those doubts never surfaced to us," he said.
It is my understanding that she asked if the moon was really made of green cheese.
I believe it to be true.
It just all adds up, ya know?
Right. I said long ago that when Saddam saw W was really coming, he hid, buried or exported a lot of stuff. He wasn't going to let WMD finds vindicate W. Of course the guys that hid it are insurgents or dead. But hopefully as the gov't takes hold some may squeal.
It's not possible that the Administration was not aware of such doubts given the position of Cheney and others on the worthiness of the intelligence community.
But it is true that Bush asked Tenet about the reliability of claims that Saddam possessed WMD and was assured that they were a "slam dunk".
The magnitude of error committed by the left regarding the Iraq war is so monstrous that the only hope for them lies in the extent to which their current falsification of news and general trickery is accepted as truth by the American people.
Things dont look good for the liberals.
Thank God for President Bush.
A liberal? Moi?
Reread my response. I used pure and "INNOCENT". Pure and innocent as in a unborn human being. Innocent as in regards to your son serving a meal in a restraunt and God forbid being shot. I would not feel obligated to extend the same respect for the life of your son's assailant as I would for the life of your son. Would you?
I served twenty years in the USAF, during Korea, Vietnam and most of the cold war. I would be willing to reeinlist and serve again, but they are far from being so desperate as to take a worn out ol' seventy three old codger.
"There was a large amount of evidence that Saddam DID have WMD. Based on that evidence everyone was sure he had them.
The fact that we didn't find any proves that we couldn't find them, or that maybe they weren't there WHEN we went in, but it's not proof that they weren't there a month before. Yet people keep insisting, that if we couldn't find them, that's absolute proof that he never had any, despite of all previous evidence."
All one needs do is dial your mind back to the lead-up to the invasion and the rhetoric coming from the Dim potty about the gigantic numbers of casualties the U.S. was going to suffer.
"The article neglected Sheila Jackson Lee who suggested we hide the troops in the desert so nobody will know we are there."
"How about next to our flag on Mars instead" said Lee in a further statement.
Yikes! This is pretty bad. Good for Powell for *finally* bringing this out but what took him so long?
He needs to be saying it on this side of the pond.
Bump to read later....
'..turn the chanel when Reid speaks..'
I do the same when Weasle Clark comes on Fox news (drives me nuts that they hired him). I mute the TV when Rangel or Levin come on....yuck!
'..what took him so long.....'
that's what I'd like to know. Why'd he let them keep bashing the President.....??
