In the wake of the Kay report that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq the administration's best explanation has become akin to "we did the best we could." I'm sorry, but over 500 soldiers are dead, and thousands of civilians-oops isn't good enough!! Especially if you remember that before the war in the "post 9/11 world" that's always mentioned as another reason we rushed to war, I don'tthink I was alone in doi9ng a double take when war with Iraq was mentioned. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11!!! Then they say "well, Clinton thought they had weapons too." True, but he never launched a pre-emptive war with Iraq did he? And when he did strike at them with airstrikes to keep Saddam contained the republicans accused him of trying to take attention away from the whole Monica thing. Then they say again," well, Clinton wasn't president in the 'post 9/11 world'" No, he was president in the pre-9/11 world-and he kept us safe with prooper use of inntelligence, dedication, and hard work.
