"The only reason we went into Iraq, I tell people now, is we were looking for somebody’s ass to kick. Afghanistan was too easy." And of course that is total bullshit. Bush had already bombed Iraq within his first 30 days of taking office in 2001. These guys had a war agenda before he even became president and 9/11 was and is only a BS excuse.
Not only that, we learned last year that it was worse that simply ignoring the intel warning of an attack, there were sons of bitches who argued that the intel was a trick! Look at this: "the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a greater threat."
So there was intel warnings of an attack and we had these war hungry freaks arguing that those warnings should be ignored because they were supposedly a trick to get our attention off of Iraq!? We need to hold people accountable, these power hungry freaks got many Americans killed. Bush is still waging around a free man.
It's no surprise that Huffington Post runs the story because it serves the BS war agenda and helps obscure the war industry agenda.
