From this story, Dean: Investigate Bush’s Statements on Iraq
“Yesterday, President Bush asserted that those who question the evidence he used to justify the pre-emptive war in Iraq are ‘revisionist historians.’ Yet it is President Bush who is rewriting history.
“To justify the preemptive invasion of Iraq, the President claimed that the United States faced an imminent threat from Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and that the Iraqi regime had direct ties to Al Qaeda. Meanwhile, no reliable evidence has materialized to prove Iraqi support of Al Qaeda, and weapons of mass destruction have not been found.
“The American people shouldn’t have to wait for the history books to be written to discover the truth. Did the President receive bad intelligence, or did his administration deliberately mislead Congress, the United Nations and the American people?
“An independent investigation must be held to determine what the President knew, and when he knew it. The American people deserve the truth.”
“We need a thorough look at what really happened going into Iraq,” Dean said. “It appears to me that what the president did was make a decision to go into Iraq sometime in early 2002, or maybe even late 2001, and then try to get the justification afterward.”
“No one is going to trust a right-wing Congress to do this,” said the former Vermont governor.
Right to the point.
