Report: Saddam Hussein Had No Connections To Terrorists, But We Still Hope You Believe He Did. It Just Makes Things Easier

From McClatchy Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Wednesday canceled plans for broad public release of a study that found no pre-Iraq war link between late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and the al Qaida terrorist network.

Rather than posting the report online and making officials available to discuss it, as had been planned, the U.S. Joint Forces Command said it would mail copies of the document to reporters — if they asked for it. The report won't be posted on the Internet.

It's official, and yet "politically controversial." Seems the truth of matters are continually controversial in this administration. Why don't they just finally own up to the fact that they lied to get us into this? Why doesn't Congress finally own up to the fact that it was really, really, amazingly stupid to buy into any of this? I'm absolutely shocked when a politician tries to back away from the fact that he or she voted to allow Bush and Co. to start this war by saying "he lied to us." If you were dumb enough to believe any of that shit they were spewing about weapons of mass destruction and ties to terrorist organizations you really should not be in any position of power. If, after the Pentagon reports it, you still believe that shit, I'm really disappointed in your thinking skills and think you should play with crayons while the big people talk.
