Once the insurgency began to take a toll on American lives,the mainstream media conspired with the democrats to question President Bush's reasonable concern about Iraq's program to develop WMDs (given the history of Saddam's denial and evasion of specific locations for inspection, the evidence from US intelligence as well U.N. weapons inspectors who went to the Tuwaitha nuclear facility 30 miles outside of Baghdad to see if all the uranium inventoried during the last inspection in February was still there.) The facility was left unguarded in the early days of the war, and many officials say villagers looted much of the property.

The arrival of the team - whose members were not weapons inspectors - marked the first time since the Iraq war began that representatives from the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency returned to the country. "Inspectors showed there was plenty of evidence to suggest they had weapons," a senior official told Fox News, refering to intelligence that the Iraqis were moving things around in preparation for a coming war. " You don't move things around and disperse them if you don't have them."

Why Did Democrats Lie

It's what they are. It's what they do.

It’s the same reason they’ve put forward an America hating Marxist for the Presidency.

Why Did Democrats Lie About Weapons of Mass Destruction?

Bush made them.

Its my understanding that the final report of the inspectors does list approximately 500 weapons of mass destruction that were found in Iraq, after the US invasion. This begs the further question; why does the left continue to also lie about no WMD being found.

“Why Did Democrats Lie....”

Ultimately Democrats want power above all else.

Democrats lie because people expect them to do it and they know they will never be called on to explain why they lied.

They know the media is gutless and won't do their jobs.

If the idiots can block oil exploration for years, and yet somehow blame some CEO for the lack of supply, all while keeping a straight face, they are capable of all sorts of lying.

The "Bush Lied" mantra fits the media template, and thus goes unchallenged. The good news is there are millions of us who see through it, and know the facts.

The bad news is, it might not be enough.

If it was a lie, it was a lie invented by the Democrats, and President Bush's crime was believing their lie.

Because they're domestic enemies! Some knowingly, most all willingly!

That the Dems lied is not a surprise—it is what they do.

The better question is: why didn’t Bush nail them with the truth? And where the h@ll were all the other Pubbie leaders? Too busy kissing Dem rear ends to be liked.

Our brilliant military victory over Saddam in three weeks time with minimal casaulties was completely overshadowed and minimalized by the Dems hysteria and the media echo chamber over the WMDs.

And the pattern was repeated: Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson/Scooter Libby/ Katrina

Let the Dems set the agenda. Don’t fight back. Don;t use the bully pulpit. Make nice with the Dem leaders while they sabotage you at every turn.

Never in the field of political conflict, has so much damage been done by such worthless and self serving jerks as the Dems, and so little opposition offered by the Pubs.

And now, shut up and elect the Democrat with the “R” after his name. Then go away.

The GOP will call you in another four years.

Or the Al Qa’qaa industrial complex, part of Saddam's nuclear program, where the HE lenses for the nuclear bombs were made. IIRC, this was the facility that the IAEA said was being repaired and added on to by unnamed contractors (IMO France, Russia or both) Also, the facility had stockpiles (hundreds of tons) of the explosives HMX and RDX used for the nuclear bomb project under UN seal. When they returned over much of it was missing and Saddam henchmen said the just used some for mining. Why do we trust the persons we sanction?

I read a multipage report on the weapons at the time of the invasion. One quarter was destroyed in front of the U.N. inspectors. One quarter was farmed out to Middle Eastern “neighbors”. One quarter was sent to Syria at the time of the invasion and the last quarter was sent to Russia in exchange for antitank weaponry. [One of our tanks was drilled right through the hull using the Russian weapons and the results and pictures was posted on FR. At the time, we thought it was friendly fire. The pictures showed a two inch hole that went straight through the tank like something out of a cartoon.]

It was the reason why there were no tanker trucks available for water after the invasion for the relief efforts after the surrender. The tankers were washed out with gasoline to clean out the chemicals.

However, and this is a big however. None of the chemicals of mass destruction were ready with a delivery system and it had a very short shelf life. The intend was to destroy the evidence and they succeeded. The chemicals delivered to Syria were buried in long trenches just inside the border.

Same reason a dog licks its own genitalia (because it CAN).
