... the Bush regime told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in great quantities and thus posed a thread to the free world, America in particular, because they had evidence that Hussein was linked to bin Laden who was linked to 9/11, although they never, ever, produced that evidence.
Nonetheless, Secretary of State Colin Powell even went to the United Nations and described Iraq's cache in detail, down to the pound.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld told us that not only did Iraq have these weapons but that he knew exactly where they were.
What the Bush regime told us defied logic and common sense.
The United Nations had inspectors in Iraq looking for weapons. They couldn't find any. Logic and common sense, then, would have dictated that the Bush regime told those inspectors where to look given the apparent knowledge of the administration; of Powell and Rumsfeld in particular.
If they knew, why wouldn't they share that knowledge with the inspectors? After all, it was the same knowledge they shared with the world through the media.
They couldn't tell were those WMD were, of course, because they didn't know since there was nothing to know about something that wasn't there. The Bush regime explained this unwillingness to help by explaining that it didn't want to compromise confidential sources.
How much sense does that make?
"Saddam has enough weaponry to attack the western world."
All of America and the rest of the world is being told this through the media.
The United Nations has inspectors in Iraq looking for weapons.
Yet, the Bush administration can't lead the UN inspectors to those weapons, although the administration "knows exactly where they are" (a few 'smart bombs' would have sufficed then) because the Bush administration doesn't want Saddam to know how they got the information.
And there you have it, America's WMD ---> Hussein ---> bin Laden ---> 9/11 logic.
As it seems, that same kind of logic is being applied again. Are we buying again?
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability - it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true everything else ... mere BS -
