    way too much ado about NOTHING is what you said..... and why in the world is a conservative suggesting that the Ispector General of the Department of Defense in an republican administration needs to be "vetted"?

    I think that the administration sexed up the case to go to war.... I have always thought that - even when republicans were calling me a treasonous traitor for even thinking it, let alone saying it.

    and make no mistake about it: I think that hyping the case for a war of CHOICE and not necessity whose opening act is an aerial onslaught against a densely populated uban area cutely entitled "shock and awe" is a freakin' crime against humanity.

    Conservatives continue to want to deify George Bush and I think he should be on trial at the Hague.

    and I think that the current congressional leaders are using the missteps to hurt our national interests, for political reasons. Putting both the serving military and the nation at risk. So it does suck to be us.

    and it wouldn't suck so bad if this moron in the white house had not invaded Iraq when our real enemy was elsewhere....but you are right.... whatever side you are on, it sucks to be us right about now.

    Can't disagree, then again it sucked under Clinton when our embassies were being bombed while we hit milk factories and empty 'camps.' Oh the humanity!

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pentagon officials undercut the intelligence community in the run-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq by insisting in briefings to the White House that there was a clear relationship between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, the Defense Department's inspector general said Friday.

    Acting Inspector General Thomas F. Gimble told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the office headed by former Pentagon policy chief Douglas J. Feith took "inappropriate" actions in advancing conclusions on al Qaeda connections not backed up by the nation's intelligence agencies.

    Gimble said that while the actions of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy "were not illegal or unauthorized," they "did not provide the most accurate analysis of intelligence to senior decision makers" at a time when the White House was moving toward war with Iraq.

    Yeah and everything since then, from both sides. We the people are losing, the politicians are sucking all the air out, while our enemies keep right on going.
