    The invasion of Iraq was not a result of failed intelligence. It was the result of cooked, stove-piped intelligence. Intelligence cherry-picked and spun to fit the Bush administration policy of invading Iraq, a complete over-turning of the normal intelligence process where policy is formed on the basis of solid intel.

    Dear lady, you really need to stop drinking the kool-aid, you're smarter than that.

    Is that all you have? Deny all the points, give the same talking points you've been giving for years without anythng to back it up, and accuse kathianne of not thinking?

    If you are worried about kool-aid drinking, you really need to look in the mirror bro.

    Why would democrats be any more honest or less imperialistic than republicans? The democrats just sell it better.

    This is because Bush flat out LIED about Saddam and his alleged WMDs. It is difficult to form an intelligent opinion if someone totally LIES to you.

    Do you think the interests served by US expansionism are really only a Republican ideal? The democrats have the same long term strategies and the same view of America as above the legal constraints the rest of the world are expected to obey. Two halves of the same party... they only switch it up every few elections so people feel like they have a say.

    Yo uguys need some more political parties, with more room for ideas... maybe voter turnout would increase if voting actually meant something.

    It was my opinion, though. I hoped it was worded as such, not as a reference to some source...
