The CIA Director (a Clinton appointee) insisted to President Bush's face that the evidence of WMDs in Iraq was a "slam dunk".

Given our own CIA Director is making such a claim, then what was Bush supposed to believe?

Besides which it ignores the obvious, Iraq DID have leftover chemical weapons munitions. Old and probably worthless.

But they weren't supposed to have them at all

Cheney was cherry picking the intel. Iraq was no threat to anyone.

No one is ever a threat to the U.S. so that is never an issue.

If you wait until another nation is a threat then you've waited too long anyway.

How do you explain the CIA Director insisting that the evidence for WMDs in Iraq was a "slam dunk"

Lying for Cheney.. Iraq was crippled by two decades of war and sanctions. Everyone who knows the ME and the oil business was opposed to this most stupid of all blunders.

Israel wanted the US to take him out.

Socialism - Ayn Rand Lexicon
aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/socialism.html
Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good. The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to …

Standard Trump behavior, even with other Presidents.

Hit back ten times as hard, make news doing that, divert from what Bush said. "Children of the same foul spirit", to quote Bush.

The rubes love this ugly, childish game. I wonder if Roy Cohn taught him that.
Trump has obviously made an exhausting study of how two year olds behave and has learned a lot from them. Bigly!!!

So? Are you claiming that Israel "doesn't know the Middle East"?

While no one should care or have to listen to anything Bush says, the same goes for Trump.

Trump is pretty bad but I don't know how Bush is able to show his face in public.
If you had told me in 2008 that the next three presidents would make Bush look good, I would have died from an exploding artery from laughing so hard.

In passing thanks for calling me “juvenile” as that term implies youth. I am now 75 and well past my use by date.
No, juvenile is a state of mind. Crooked Donald is also 75 years old and the most juvenile president we have ever had. And he was well past his use by date years ago.

Kind of how Republicans loved Bush, but now you hate him when you became a Trump Humpers.
One of the strangest whipsaws I have ever seen was on this forum. I came here in 2011 and pseudocons were still claiming Saddam had WMDs.

Whenever chemical weapons turned up anywhere on Earth, is was guaranteed the pseudocons would claim that country got them from Saddam.

Syria, for example. I well remember the screaming match over Syria having gotten the chemical weapons from Saddam which Assad used on the rebels.

This went on and on for almost the next four years after I came here. They must have been doing it since 2003. I don't know how long this forum has been around.

Then...in 2015...Trump spouted the longstanding liberal narrative that our intelligence agencies lied, Bush lied, there were no WMDs in Iraq.

And not one pseudocon has claimed Saddam had WMDs ever since.

If that's not blind devotion to a cult leader, I don't know what is.

He did have WMDs. Leftover chemical shells from years earlier.

No, it was not some huge arsenal but he wasn't supposed to have them at all.

But that was kind of the point. He was told to destroy them, and they did so by taking these shells and burying them, because they didn't know how to destroy them. Of course, you store chemical weapons underground for 10 years, they aren't going to retain their potency at all.

But some fool dug one up and set it off and suddenly they are screaming about WMD's.

They didn't make Bush look good. They all have only succeeded in making the electorate look bad.

They could've turned them over to UN weapons inspectors.

GW is an idiot. And the left's love for GW after they hated GW, is equally idiotic.
The Left needs to remember when they were calling Bush a war criminal, Trump was taking to the airwaves trashing Bush and writing checks to Democrats.

Trump went on Howard Stern and said he supported the war.
