    Last week he admits the mainly cited reason for war, that Saddam has WMD, was merely "bureaucratic." Now this shit.

    Just wanted to include in this Richard Perle's comments from MTP in February.

    Richard Perle -- NBC News' Meet the Press - 23/02/03:
    "But please allow me to say: I find the accusation that this administration has embarked upon this policy for oil to be an outrageous, scurrilous charge for which, when you asked for the evidence, you will note there was none. There was simply the suggestion that, because there is oil in the ground and some administration officials have had connections with the oil industry in the past, therefore, it is the policy of the United States to take control of Iraqi oil. It is a lie, Congressman. It is an out and out lie. And I’m sorry to see you give credence to it."

    TONY BLAIR:
    "Let me first of all deal with the conspiracy theory idea that this has somehow to do with oil. There is no way whatever, if oil were the issue, that it would not be infinitely simpler to cut a deal with Saddam, who I'm sure will be delighted to give us access to as much oil as we wanted, if he could carry on building weapons of mass destruction."

    TONY BLAIR:
    "The very reason we're taking the action we are, is nothing to do with oil, or any of the other conspiracy theories put forward. It is to do with one very simple fact. I believe that we have to make sure that the will of the United Nations is upheld."




    and stolen from another message board:
    Interesting.

    I doubt it. I saw on the news the other day that congress is launching an investigation on the Bush administration. They feel that there is a good chance the Bush sent the United States to war under false pretences. I mean Jesus Christ it has been 6 weeks since the war stopped and not any significant evidence of WMD.

    Well it seem obvious that the government thinks we are all idiots. Now be a good little sheep and do as daddy tells you.
