So, VP Dick Cheney is now telling us “As I look at the intelligence with respect to Iraq, what they got wrong was that there weren’t any stockpiles.” “What they found was that Saddam Hussein still had the capability to produce weapons of mass destruction. He had the technology, he had the people, he had the basic feed stock.”
What was VP Cheney saying a few years ago? A September 8th 2002 article from CnnCCP…On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Vice President Dick Cheney accused Saddam of moving aggressively to develop nuclear weapons over the past 14 months to add to his stockpile of chemical and biological arms.
Now, I’ve taken a lot of heat for not being in favor of the Iraq War. Have even been accused of not “supporting the troops”. (God that slogan makes me giggle) But, seeing as one of the chief architects of the War, is even back peddling on the reasons why we are over there is sickening. How can anyone still cheer for a War, which VP Cheney just stated the “facts” were a bit suspect. Amazing!!!
MATTHEWS: You admit your facts were wrong and it doesn’t bother you
GAFFNEY: May I state my position rather than you stating it? May I do that? My position is that it’s regrettable that any Americans died. It is regrettable that they had to die, but I believe they did have to die
“But I believe they did have to die” ..I am speechless.
