Why did GW Bush invade Iraq?

The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda, and 15 of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia. The others were from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon.

So why did Bush evacuate 2 dozen members of Osama bin Laden’s family from the United States the first few days following? (They were friends of the Bush family.)

Why did GW attack a completely different nationIraq?

Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9-11. He didn’t even like Osama bin Ladin.

Pretty much everyone (not angling to get a job on FOX News) agrees the War on Iraq was a mistake.

Former CIA Deputy Director and intelligence briefer Michael Morell recently admits Iraq WMD “intelligence” was a lie.


The war was going to happen. The WMD claims were the result of the need to find a case for the war, rather than the other way around. Paul Krugman is exactly right when he says:

The Iraq war wasn’t an innocent mistake, a venture undertaken on the basis of intelligence that turned out to be wrong. America invaded Iraq because the Bush administration wanted a war. The public justifications for the invasion were nothing but pretexts, and falsified pretexts at that.

The Right and Wrong Questions About the Iraq War

Trillions of dollars wasted. So many lives destroyed. These are the guys to blame. 😦

Iraq would have been better off with Saddam. The USA would be safer today if they had let the Iraqi people decide their own fate.
