Good lord, what a nightmare.


Apologies for being vague: the reason I think it's a nightmare is because the US might have to testify on behalf of that monster. Not because I'm hoodwinked.

Seems all those flaming wingnuts that demanded Rumsfeld resign over A.G. Prison now have a choice to make.

I mean, either the big guy is responsible for everything that happens on his watch (as they want Rummy to be...) or he's not (as the stick in the Bush's eye crowd will hope Saddam isn't.)

And...with apologies to Dave Barry...I'm thinking the Flaming Wingnuts would be a great name for a band...

Sarah, see why I trust my government as far as I can defecate? You did know Saddam was a FORTY year CIA asset, didn't you? Like I mentioned I was on active duty when the Iranian embassy fiasco went down, I saw so many "mis-leading" statements in such a short time I just decided to read as much "clasified" material on the topic, as I was allowed. To say the secrets we try to keep would make much of "middle america" quite angry is a bit of an understatement. As for the response by someone in an earlier thread that the Iraq/Al Qaeda links are there, and I choose to ignore them, well let me point out a common feature of ALL toltalitarian states/dictatorship. These states rely on the supression of religion witness: Stalin, Mao, Hitler, you name the dictator. Saddam saw the Shia fundelmentalists as a threat, and while he might have paid the families of PLO suicide bombers some cash, he was not about to risk his control for a Islamic revolutionary like Bin-Laden. Glad to see you heard from your husband, may he remain safe and come home on time when his rotation is supposed to end.

Bubba, what's interesting is that these facts have been in the public domain for years, just like the knowledge that Saddam had been unarmed by successful weapons inspections was also a verifiable fact. Which makes the Bush administration's campaign of lies to go to war all that more cynical, since they counted on people being ill-informed by the major media. I wonder if Sarah cited this because she is coming to realize they were hoodwinked.
