The CIA did not say that there were weapons, Bush and company made that up.
US Intelligence About Iraq Didn't Really Fail, It Was Manipulated
"Never -- not once -- did it say, 'He has WMD.'" - General Zinni
The Bush Administration wanted war and didn't care about the truth or the law.
Not one mainstream media outlet has reported the truth:
Bush's War Violates International Law
Remember the weapons declaration that Saddam had submitted?
Saddam was telling the truth, it was Bush who was lying!
Did any of you figure that out yet?
Oh Saddam killed people? Yes, with the help of the US. The US was involved in Saddam's gassings! The US helped Saddam gas people. Scott Ritter and Richard Butler confirm this fact.
(Donahue help expose these kinds of facts on his show, that is why his show was canceled )
How did Saddam get into power in the first place? Who helped him?
The US Mainstream media didn't report this.
"The coup that brought the Ba'ath Party to power in 1963 was celebrated by the United States.
The CIA had a hand in it. They had funded the Ba'ath Party - of which Saddam Hussein was a young member - when it was in opposition.
US diplomat James Akins served in the Baghdad Embassy at the time. Mr. Akins said, "I knew all the Ba'ath Party leaders and I liked them".
"The CIA were definitely involved in that coup. We saw the rise of the Ba'athists as a way of replacing a pro-Soviet government with a pro-American one and you don't get that chance very often.
"Sure, some people were rounded up and shot but these were mostly
communists so that didn't bother us".
"So just why did Bush choose war? From the evidence before us today, there is no one single reason. Rather, there are three converging and tightly interwoven reasons: oil, Israel and military transformation. The Cheney energy strategy required Iraqi oil; AIPAC and the Christian right wanted to weaken the Arab world to strengthen Israel;
and Don Rumsfeld wanted to expedite the transformation of the U.S. military." - Bush's Real Rationale for War by Patrick Doherty
