~.~ Never is a very big word.
I must be confused. I thought the reason we went into Iraq was because we were after bin laden.
~.~ I do not believe my above quote says that bush and co. said that Saddam knew of and planned the attacks. I said I thought that was why we went there, I should have said that differently. I should have said I thought the whole reason to go after anyone in the Middle East was because of 9/11 and that anyone we went after had some tie to bin laden.
~.~ You seem to have me confused with someone who has a party. Like it or not, I have my own views and I don't give a fig what a person's party is, all I care about is the job they do.
Now, how about the fact that bin laden is still free, laughing at us. Don't you want to know why bush has not captured him, don't you wonder why our troops are over there dying while bin laden lives an easy, safe life, don't you wonder when he will attack again because bush did not go after him?
This war began because of 9/11, at least that was the coat-tail bush rode on, yet the one responsible is free. I don't care what party you (general term) are with, I don't care what you think of me, the truth is staring all of us in the face, truth is bush lied and our children are paying the ultimate price.
I want to know why.
~edit to clarify.
I would bet that most of the U.S. citizens believe/d that we went to Iraq because we were after any and all that were involved with 9/11, especially bin laden, this is why my 'coat-tail' comment. President Bush had to be aware of this, so whether he outwardly lied or not, a lie of omission is still a lie.
With that, I take my leave.
