Just playing Devil’s Advocate: Is there a possibility that releasing the information would compromise other intel operations?

Bush Didn’t Lie: But why did his administration sit on the evidence of Saddam Hussein’s WMDs?

I'm not sure Bush "sat on" evidence of WMDs. I recall hearing about stockpiles being found, but the imbecile "Talking Heads" kept on as if they had not, and the story quickly died. Bush didn't play it up and say "I told you so".

This is inexplicable. The nation has gone from prospering to a euro-socialist hellhole PRECISELY because of this decision. How is God’s name did the Bush administration sit on this information offering justification for their war decisions, and at the same time send more troops into Iraq with public opinion firmly against the war. This is the biggest news bombshell in my memory, as this decision literally paved the way for the rise of the far left, the election of a Democrat super majority and the election of Obama...and every aspect of massive government power grab since.

Slick Willy Clinton had already confirmed that Saddam had WMD in 1998. He was so concerned about it that he actually took action to get rid of them:

On December 16, 1998, on the eve of the scheduled House vote on his impeachment, Bill Clinton launched a surprise bombing attack on Baghdad. As justification for this exploit, he cited the urgent threat that Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction posed to America, and the need for immediate action. Almost immediately, the House Democrats held a caucus and emerged calling for a delay in the impeachment proceedings. House minority leader Dick Gephardt made a statement: "We obviously should pass a resolution by saying that we stand behind the troops. I would hope that we do not take up impeachment until the hostilities have completely ended."

Conveniently, a delay so near the end of the House term would have caused the vote to be taken up in the next session – when the newly elected House membership would be seated with more Democratic representation, thereby improving Clinton’s chances of dodging impeachment.

The Republicans did, in fact, agree to delay the hearings, but only for a day or two. Amazingly, Clinton ended the bombing raid after only 70 hours -- once it became clear that in spite of the brief delay, the vote would still be held in the current session.

Once the bombing stopped, Clinton touted the effectiveness and importance of the mission. As reported by ABC News : “We have inflicted significant damage on Saddam's weapons of mass destruction programs, on the command structures that direct and protect that capability, and on his military and security infrastructure,” he said. Defense secretary William Cohen echoed the point: “We estimate that Saddam's missile program has been set back by at least a year.”

RE:”In this story’s first outrage, it now transpires that Hussein had some 5,000 tank shells filled with sarin nerve gas, mustard gas, and other lethal agents. This is roughly ten times the arsenal that I reported that he possessed. Had I access to more accurate information back then, my pieces would have reflected the depth of Hussein’s supplies of these munitions”

Because the only ones who would have been impressed with that are/were GOP Busshies.

In 2002 and 2003 Bush Cheney, Rummy, Condi were making the case that the Iraq invasion was about nukes not WWI era poison gas technology.

‘”We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.” –National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, on Iraq's nuclear capabilities and the Bush administration's case for war, Sept. 8, 2002’

As Obama said, 'If you like your doctor...', now mDems claim the Obamacare insured # is all that counts not your lost doctor.

“1980 George H. W. Bush presidential campaign[edit]

In 1977, Rove was the first person hired by George H. W. Bush for his unsuccessful 1980 presidential campaign, which ended with Bush as the vice-presidential nominee.”

FATASS Karl and ALL of the Bushes go WAY BACK!

I think it was always known it was there, however the libtards and talking dickheads in the enemedia basically said that what was found did not meet their definition of “weapons of mass destruction”. In other words, libtards didn’t believe it because it politically hurt Republicans, therefore it was true.

Yeah, but is this implying that HW was somehow complicit in Saddam Hussein having the chemical weapons?

Seems simple enough. It advanced his Saudi buddies’ agendas, made them lots of money and ultimately wiped out a large chunk of conservatism. Which is always a RINO goal. Especially when they can use our own patriotism against us.

When the Saudis were flown out during the air travel lockdown, that’s the point we should have realized we had been sold out.

No I do not think Bush or any of our people did it/the truther thing. But I think they like the dems, refused to let a good crisis go to waste.

I believed in him. I was wrong to.
