War critics astonished as US hawk admits invasion was illegal

Apparently Richard Perle, a key member of the defence policy board, which advises secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld, has admitted that the war was illegal!! Doesn't that constitute a confession? i wonder if there will actually be some frickin' backlash for once? Bush and co. have already begun backpeddaling away from Bush's statement that we'd be sending more troops to Iraq-sputtering the whole way while they did so-it will be interesting to see how they spin this one. Mr. Perle said, ""I think in this case international law stood in the way of doing the right thing." and went on to say, "international law ... would have required us to leave Saddam Hussein alone", and this would have been morally unacceptable.

To sum up-we broke the law, we're above the law, what're you gonna do about it? Nice-Richard Perle-way to win hearts and minds!
