It was the overwhelming consensus of opinion by everybody in a position to know that Iraq had WMD, yet the American left PERSISTS on flogging the blatant lie that Bush was lying when he claimed Iraq WMD. Further the American left persists in flogging that Bush lied about his reasons for invading Iraq, all CLEARLY spelled out in his Iraq war resolution. Apparently saddan WAS in compliance with UN resolutions and HAD NOT committed human rights violations. Really? And then these same people whine that the US has 'lost respect in the world community'. Yeah , no shit. Mission Accomplished, losers. Can anybody explain such despicable behavior??? Was it just to get the offices back?? Is political power worth undercutting the President with a lying smear campaign?? Comments?
