So, what was the clear threat?Somebody needs to put a restraining order on Bush from using 911 to justify Iraq.
In Bush's September 11 speech, this jumped out at me:
Bush in his speech said,
"I am often asked why we're in Iraq when Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks. The answer is that the regime of Saddam Hussein was a clear threat."Speech Transcript
What was the clear threat?
WMD's? No. Even the Whitehouse admits that, if you twist their arms hard enough.
Threat of invasion? No. Saddam's vaunted Republican Guard folded like a KMart lawnchair under Rush Limbaugh.
Terrorist threat? No. According to the Senate Intelligence Committee report that Dick Cheney hasn't bothered to read.
Standing Navy off our shore? No.
Missiles on our border? No.
So what's the clear threat Bush is talking about?
A threat so imminent that we had to rush-off hell-bent on war without proper equipment or planning?
