um, that was not evidence that he was not involved, it was testimony from ONE report. The first person accounts from the 9/11 commission report and from other reports that have popped up in the past five years fully validate it.
I am not sure which excuse you were told to pump you up for service in the desert but WMD was the principle INITIAL cause. After the fact, when the intel issue came up and WMDs were not found as was expected by Blix and others the reason kept changing. Freedom for Iraqis, Democracy, Foothold in the region, Get Saddam, concern for Israel, Al Queda [although until we started a war and created a vacuum there was no AQ in Iraq]. The answer changed every time the previous one failed to work. Facts kept getting in the way of BS.
You are really going to have to do better than dogma as an answer. There is just too much readily available information to shoot that down.
McBear please educate us all, the great unwashed, on what President Bush said was the reason for going into Iraq. If you can please quote him. Feel Free to use his State of the Union Address, the Address to the UN, Colin Powell's speech to the UN, etc.
You will find that it was part of list that was long. And do us all a favor, you portray yourself as this great neutral intellectual, please try and practice a little bit of what you preach and refrain from the "The answer changed everytime the previous one failed to work." The only mistake in the whole justification for war was that Hussein got rid of the WMD before we got there and we did not catch it.
