We Know Bush Doesn't Read the Papers... But Does the Media?

MUST SEE LINK: How the White House Embraced Disputed Arms Intelligence

If there is ONE article you need to read it is the one I have linked above.

Here is a brief synopsis:

The intelligence that the President acted on for going to war in Iraq was based on 2 major things:

Saddam had bought some 60,000 aluminum tubes. These were high grade tubes that could possibly be used in centrifuges to enrich uranium and thus possibly build a NUCYALAR bomb.

Yellow cake (uranium) was being sought by Saddam Hussein from Niger.

This article used high level sources to tell the whole story about the flurry in Washington after the tube intelligence was put forth.

The first analyst who reported the tube stuff, named Joe said they could be used in a 1950 centrifuge, but ironically the tubes Saddam bought were anodized (so they could be protected from weather) which was contrary to tubes used in the so called 1950's centrifuge.

Dick Cheney took this tube stuff and ran with it saying that "we now know that Saddam has restarted his nuclear weapons program." This was before letting another commission made up of the US's top scientists on nuclear centrifuges as well as nuclear weapons in general got a look at Joe's report. By the way... this commission included the inventor and engineer that made the 1950 centrifuge.

All these experts agreed that the tubes were not to spec for any centrifuge (they were the wrong thickness, anodized, basically useless in a nuclear program).

The yellow cake story was also discredited when the send Joe Wilson the foreign American diplomat (in charge of the embassy in Iraq) to Niger to find out what he could know about the yellow cake stuff. He came back and told everybody he didn't find ANY evidence that Saddam had bought the stuff or was even looking to buy it. This is when Robert Novak (a conservative journalist... whom by the way did not get the same treatment Dan Rather got) exposed Joe Wilson's wife as a CIA operative. This was supposedly leaked to Bob Novak from a White House official.

Anyway, the New York Times this Sunday who also used White House Senior Officials, CIA, and other sources from Washington exposed the White House, specifically Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, President Bush and others as knowing all this stuff was phony baloney before trumpeting the case for war.

This is the people leading this country right now. Mind you most of the people who were making the case for war in the months leading up to the war were all ex OIL people.

The importance of the story published Sunday in the New York Times is the following:

Until now, this whole invading Iraq for Oil interests has been a conspiracy theory. We now have confirmation from high level Washington Insiders who saw the intelligence, and have come out to speak out against this administration and its WAR MONGERS.

People, all the blood spilled in Iraq was based on a fraud that was placed in front of the American people in the form of a war on terror, or a mushroom cloud looming over our heads.

Iraq was destroyed with the first gulf war and the resulting sanctions and constant weapons inspections. The inspectors found these tubes and they found them being used to make conventional anti-air rockets. Something that was not disputed under the UN resolutions. Iraq was allowed to make conventional weapons after Gulf War 1.

Saddam did not seek uranium from Niger or anywhere. He was not a smoking gun, we found out rather quickly that Iraq was in essence an UN-armed country.

This administration is responsible for leading our soldiers into war on false pretenses, which they knew full and well ahead of time AND THEY AREN'T GETTING IMPEACHED?

Bill Clinton got impeached for ORAL SEX?!

So it may be too late for impeachment. Vote for whoever you want folks. Go right ahead.
