I just wanted to remind everyone of a fact-I'm going to try to do this on a regular basis so the administration won't get away with rewriting history-The new line-repeated ad nauseum on MTP this morning, is Saddam had to go because he wasn't cooperating with the UN resolutions. What I heard was "He wouldn't let us in." If I recall correctly he DID let the inspectors in, and we gave Iraq a deadline and got the inspectors pulled out before they were done. The UN wanted more diplomacy but we said no-we had to go to war RIGHT AWAY!!! Just a reminder folks-what they say now doesn't change what they did then. Paul Krugman's latest is a great piece of writing on the subject of revisionist history. Definitely more recommended reading.
