Shrugs. Anybody with sense knew he was lying.

Anyway, the decision to attack Iraq had been made almost a decade before it actually happened. Its purpose, as I’ve noted before, was to send a message to the world: The U.S. is in sole charge now and this is what happens to people who defy us. Mr. al-Janabi’s lies helped fabricate a reason for the invasion.

The decision to invade Iraq was made not because Iraq was dangerous, but because it wasn’t. After a decade of sanctions much of Iraq’s military forces were paralyzed by lack of maintenance and ammunition. Also, much of the terrain of Iraq is perfect for the mechanized warfare that the U.S. military has focused on for decades.

So, this revelation doesn’t surprise me.

Actually, this isn’t really new. ‘Curveball’ was on 60 Minutes last year and admitted then that it was all a lie - and the Iraq Survey Group concluded the same thing in 2004.

The BBC is hyping this up as if it’s a big revelation, but it’s actually old news.

Exactly. Why is this news again?

Exactly. Why is this news again?

Its a good reminder given that the GOP is banging the drums for a war with Iran.

Thanks to our schools and political leadership, the U.S. has acquired an international reputation as the home of 250 million people dumb enough to buy 'The Wacky Wall-Walker.'
