Well, you’re right. I only know what I hear and read in the news.
I don’t find fault in the President visiting children on the morning of 9/11. I was pointing out that the act of his sitting dumbfounded for five minutes while waiting for someone to tell him what to do was something like “paralysis by analysis".
As a matter of fact, it was worse. He wasn’t even analyzing anything. That is what he should have been doing. He should have been gathering more information and assessing the situation.
Whether or not an Iraqi flew a plane into the WTC is rather relevant. Yes, please split hairs if that is what it takes to back up the Saddam facilitating the training and operations of Al Qaeda. I really would be interested in reading your source material on that.
What does a terrorist regime need to do for me to feel comfortable about taking them down? First, tell me how Iraq was a “terrorist regime”. How were they a threat to us? A terrorist act committed by Iraq toward the US would have been seen as an act of war. They didn’t want to start a war with us.

“These folks and their ilk?” Now, just what the hell are you trying to say with that? Does this “ilk” extend to all Arabs? Middle-Easterners? And exactly which statement are you calling “irresponsible and callous”? My question of how many Iraqis flew planes into buildings? Okay, let me broaden the question then. What has Iraq done to us aside from recently resisting our invasion?
“There's no significant difference in the Dan Rather situation and that for which you've blamed Fox News. People took bad information and ran with it. Blame whoever you want, I'm not excusing it.”
I didn’t blame Fox news for anything. It wasn’t Fox news that invented the excuse for invasion. They didn’t invent yellow cake, WMD’s, or the shift to Iraqi Freedom. They just parrot what the White House tells them to say without question. It sure would be great if we could trust the White House for truthful information.
You say that WMD’s were not the only legitimate reason we had to go to war. Name another. Iraqi freedom? Save it.
You speak of these WMD’s as if they were there. I’m sorry, but they were, are, and just will not be there. When did the UN, leaders of the coalition, neighboring nations, etc. ever say with absolute certainty, with proof in their hand, that Iraq had effective, current, active WMD’s?
You claim he distributed them to his friends. What a fairy tale. You just get “visions”, do you?
You make a lot of claims. Lots of right wing pipe dreaming going on. When you offer information that is not carried by the MSM, please give a source. I’d really be keen to hear where you got your information. Rumsfeld had those missiles pegged down to the “South, the North, the West, and the East of Baghdad and the surrounding areas.” I sure hope you’re not using the same map. You party stooge.
