It seems that even though our government can’t give us proof of those weapons of mass distruction that we told the rest of the world that Iraq definitely had, we should just take their word for it. Powell has slammed the media for their Iraq WMD reports.
Powell said there was “no doubt whatsoever” that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction prior to the U.S.-led invasion that ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, though little evidence has turned up since then.
Uh huh. And in a United States court of law, you have to have evidence. Proof. Something. You can’t just stand there and say “this is what we are telling you so you should believe it.” I’m sick of my own government trying to feed me that crap, and it makes us look like idiots to the rest of the world. If having an affair with an intern and then lying about it is grounds for impeachment, I think that lying about the reason for a war should be an impeachable offense too. [via Moose Mike.]
