In a speech at Fort Hood on 3/12, Dubbyuh's penchant for the historical revisionism, which he once scolded others for, once more reared its head. <blockquote> From the beginning, our goal in Iraq has been to promote Iraqi independence... - <a href=http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/04/20050412.html>GWB, 3/12/05</a></blockquote> Now as we were told, prior to an earlier bit of historical revisionism, the sole purpose for invading Iraq was to strip Iraq of its WMD's and deprive Saddam Hussein of the capability to produce weapons of WMD's neither of which, as history hs since shown us, were present in Iraq. Even more puzzling was this: <blockquote>The toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad will be recorded, alongside the fall of the Berlin Wall, as one of the great moments in the history of liberty. - <a href=http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/04/20050412.html>GWB, 3/12/05</a></blockquote> Now, I don't know if anyone actually saw the video of the event, but it was the US Marines that pulled the statue down while a crowd of Iraqi citizens stood by. The only thing this event will go down as is just another in a long line of blatantly staged photo-ops designed to serve the Administration.
