      Funny, if I think that something is true, and it turns out that I was mistaken, is that a "lie"? I thought that a "lie" included a deliberate attempt to deceive, and if I thought I was telling the truth but I was relying on erroneous information, that was a "mistake" but not a "lie."

      The whole pretext for the invasion and occupation was that Saddam was refusing to comply with multiple UN resolutions. Saddam himself could have short-circuited the whole process merely by saying, "welcome, UN weapons inspectors. I have no WMDs, and you have full and unfettered access to any place you want to look to prove it."

      If it was a "lie" then Saddam himself did plenty to perpetuate that "lie" as well.
      This is nice cover, but ignores reality. You can cloak the real reasons we invaded behind a shield of busted UN resolutions if it makes you happy, but anyone interested in more than trying to win the internets would treat such rhetoric like the plague. It's childish, ignorant, dangerous and dooms us to a future in which we continue to languish in a cycle of failed decision making. Cheney and his merry band of crooks aren't going to prison and only an incompetent sycophant would buy a history book that tells a different tale, so the time to start actually doing the citizens of this country a favor is now, but starts only when we come clean. The knuckle-drsggers in the US need NWAA (New World Orders Anonymous) in the baddest of ways, time to take the step of admittance.

              The problem is the real enemy is at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

              U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Grantville) addressed the Benghazi investigation and terrorist organization ISIS among other topics Saturday morning at the Cobb County GOP breakfast at its headquarters. […]

              “I’m not going to stand here and confirm or deny anything,” Westmoreland told the crowd. “Our job is to figure out the truth.”

              Westmoreland spent much of his speech criticizing Democrats. “I think our enemy stands on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” Westmoreland said to loud applause.

                  It's pretty easy to write a Republican statement. You start with the conclusion that Obama is evil and then just backfill the "reasons."

                          Not in the commonly accepted use of the word. That would change in one quick hurry, however, if the savages capture and behead a pilot.

                            I think if Republicans want ground troops committed to Iraq, they should come out and say so. We all know what sad old man McCain really wants, its time for him and his pals to say it in public. The guy's not afraid of hitting the Sunday talk show circuit, to say the least. Campaign on a "lets invade Iraq AND Syria" platform. I have no idea if that's the GOP's stance in total, but these neo-conservative failures need to own to what they'd really like to do. How many troops would you commit, and for how long?

                              Better yet, whoever -- Dem or GOP -- proposes war should have to also propose how we pay for it. I want explicit war taxes, levied over and above the general tax structure. Make it hurt. If it's truly a national interest, people will be willing to pay for it. Or put it this way: a national interest is defined as that for which people are willing to pay.
