The Truth About Iraq

Filed under: General Politics — mikeyc252 @ 9:17 pm

We’ve all heard about the Iraq war. One side says Saddam had WMDs and was cooperating with Al Queda but we just didn’t find them. He was still dangerous. The other side (which was almost nonexistent at the time-save patriots like Paul and Obama) said there were no WMDS and Iraq wasn’t dangerous.

It’s obvious the later group was right be now. Yet another question remains-why didn’t Hussein cooperate? First off, he did. Iraq submitted a 12,000 page report to the UN detailing how they destroyed their WMDS. They allowed inspectors in.

But to the US and the world, Hussein was defiant. He didn’t want anyone in his country poking around labs. He was unclear to the US about his nuclear program.

Now the answer has emerged. Yesterday on 60 Minutes, a former FBI agent was interviewed who debriefed Hussein. He says the reason Hussein was defiant was because he didn’t want Iran attacking them. That’s right. He was afread of Iran and he wanted them to be afraid of him.

I hate Bush as much as the next guy, but it seems this gives him credit-Hussein was purposely misleading him.
I’m not saying it was a good decision, but it makes the evidence to go to war go from 0 to 1.
