After the attack on Sept. 11, 2001, the Bush administration wasn’t going to allow what had been going on with Saddam Hussein, with the U.N. for 12 years, to continue. The risk of him having material to provide to surrogate terrorist groups could no longer be tolerated.
As far as the Bush lies, the 16 words used in the State of the Union Address was what the British “learned.” I have a copy of “Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction – The Assessment of the British Government.” Thus, for the Bush lied group, there had to be a huge mass conspiracy. Huge because when Secretary of State Colin Powell made his statements before the U.N., no nation came forward to counter what was given.
H. J. Res. 114: Senate: 77 – 23 (Joe Biden, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, “yea”) to use military force against Iraq.
