I am not connecting Saddaam with 9/11. I never posted anything even close to doing so. Are you saying since past presidents and administration help fund some dictators, that George Bush is to continue doing the same thing and NOT deal with Saddaam? How many chances should Saddaam have received before someone finally stood up to him? I wouldn't trust anything the New York Times wrote..especially since their lead editor came out and admited to reporting a ton of news without ever substantiating the sources. They are just another National Enquirer to me. You're right on one thing..the US government may not be 100% fresh and clean..in comparison to Iraq. I'm sure some things have gone on behind the scenes that we don't know about...but that's just it. We don't know about them. Our troops DID find the mass graves of hundres of thousands of people that Saddaam killed. We have proven that. Can it be proven that the CIA told Saddaam to kill 5,000 people? Hardly. If everyone wants to stick to fact....let's stick to fact.
Who continued to support him after we knew that he killed thousands? US? Don't think so.It's true that when you pick the lesser of two evils, you're still picking evil....but you're talking about past administrations. I'm talking about the current president..George W. Bush. Look...Rumsfeld definitely has issues and should probably not be in power, but lets stick to the issue at hand. We are forced to abide with Pakistan and their little man of a leader because of Osucky Bin Ladin. He's in Pakistan and in order for us to ever dream of capturing him, we have to abide by Pakistans law. They don't pose an imminent threat to us, so what lesson have we not learned?
So, Jeremy...what news sources do you trust? Or maybe you follow the lead of your conservative leader who says he doesn't like to read newspapers...they are too biased. He gets his information for his advisors. (I am sure his advisors aren't biased! ) Poor Diane Sawyer had to keep a straight face when he said this in an interview.
