Joe Conason writes about Bush’s statement yesterday that we went to war not because Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, but because,
“We gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn’t let them in.”
Joe asks the question, “What possessed the president to make an assertion that everyone on the planet knows to be untrue?” (Remember – Bush tried to prevent U.N. inspectors from going to Iraq, and then insisted they were taking too long.)
Go read it. It’s astounding. Why isn’t the press repeating this statement? Americans should know that their leader is seriously unhinged.
