While reading the post of one of the LTE commenters, I found myself “evolving” about a seminal event in our recent history.

I refer to the Iraq War, where we went into the country for oil, right? On cue, all the liberal politicians and pundits joined together and declared, “Bush lied, people died.” But, who really lied about the WMD’s? President Clinton and his party were almost ready to invade back in 1998, joining his fellow war mongering past presidents Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ, and now BHO.

Who actually told Bush about the WMD’s and Saddam’s acquisition of yellow cake uranium from Northern Africa. Who was the person, along with the U.N. and other intel agencies around the world, who actually convinced the President to go into Iraq? Was it Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld or General Colin Powell? I submit it was Gen. Powell who convinced the president and the U.N. Security Council to go into Iraq. Who else had the connections to the foreign intel agencies, CIA, and other security resources? Who else was out there convincing the world, and President Bush, that Saddam Hussein had WMD’s and was acquiring yellow cake uranium?

Having learned the art of evolving from our president, I have concluded that President George W. Bush was inaccurately targeted as the antagonist of the Iraq War. It is unfortunate, though, that President Clinton did not act back in 1998; I feel that many lives would have been saved and maybe the U.S. could also have captured Bin Laden under cover of that same operation.
