Bush's Iraq / Niger uranium letter a fraud

US should be "embarrassed" over failure to find WMDs: ex-spies
Thu Apr 17,10:36 PM ET Add Top Stories - AFP to My Yahoo!

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US government should be "embarrassed" over the apparent failure to uncover weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the main justification for going to war, retired intelligence officials said Thursday.

...


Retired CIA intelligence analyst Ray McGovern told AFP: "Some of my colleagues are virtually certain that there will be some weapons of mass destruction found, even though they might have to be planted.


"I'm just as sure that some few will be found, but not in an amount that by any stretch would justify the charge of a threat against the US or anyone else."


He added: "Even if the planting was discovered by and by, they'll say, 'ok, the weapons were planted -- fine.'"

McGovern said he was alluding to a remark by Secretary of State Colin Powell after it emerged that a letter purporting to show that Iraq had sought to procure uranium from Niger -- a key argument in the case for war and cited in President George W. Bush's January 28 State of the Union address -- was a forgery.


Powell told NBC: "It was the information that we had. We provided it. If that information is inaccurate, fine."

The American government propaganda looks like shit, smells like shit, and tastes like shit..yet the vast majority of the American public seems to eat it up like it's a chocolate bar because that's what their leaders tell 'em it is.

Non-arrogant Americans actually care what non-American's think. Some of us believe that other countries have worth and that the world does not revolve around us.

I thought shroomerites could more easily see the interconnectivity of life than the average alcohol-drinking, flag-waving Republican, but perhaps I was wrong (for the first time).

No, I actually meant what I said, but like your idols in DC you feel the need to put your own spin on my words.


more easily see = all the questions will be answered

That is a mighty leap. It seems that your "logic" needs a serious overhaul.
