As good a reason as any?
Why is this not surprising? A 15-month study by the Bush Administration confirms what most people have come to expect, even while the top of the Administration tries to pretend otherwise: Iraq had no WMD.
Bush, Blair, and Howard are already spinning this, and I would, too, if I were them. It's that or go back to bed.
But I am truly surprised that the President has named a new reason for going to war. According to MSNBC:
"After being briefed on the report, the president cited Saddam’s 'history of using weapons of mass destruction, a long record of aggression and hatred for America' in calling the invasion the right thing to do."
Hatred for America?
If that's going to be our criterion from now on, we'd better stock up on some more army stuff.
