So Much For Pre-Emptive Strikes...

july 9, 2004

See what happens when you strike before getting actual evidence? Sheesh...Here's a big ouchie for the Bush Administration who was so eager to go to war...

U.S. intelligence agencies overstated the threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, relied on dubious sources and ignored contrary evidence in the run-up to the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, a Senate committee reported on Friday.
So much for WMDs...
The administration at all levels, and to some extent us, used bad information to bolster its case for war. And we in Congress would not have authorized that war.
Ouch, looks like our President is out on his own now.
