Great News from Iraq
Here's my favorite quote:
Nevertheless, the speed of Al-Qaeda’s decline in Iraq – not only in the north but throughout the country – has taken many military strategists and observers by surprise.
Many, but not all.
It does not matter how you spin it. The invasion of Iraq, however nobly motivated in your mind, did not serve any vital purpose for this country.
I will not repeat my position regarding the futility of attempting to establish democracy in Iraq or how we have limited our ability to act elsewhere by our commitment of resources in Iraq. Let us not discus the empowerment of Iran resulting from the deposition of Saddam.
I could go on but why bother.
There never was any solid evidence, and yet the lying vice-president presented it as fact.
I know a journalist who was trying like hell to corroborate Cheney's claim. He'd be a rich man if he could have, but of course, there was no meeting.
That is what "widely debunked" refers to.
I'm tiring of explaining this to you over and over and over....
By the time Cheney claimed it was fact, it was already show not to be fact. And in any case, there was never any evidence of a meeting, only the fact that these two guys were in Prague at the same time. The Czechs were trying to get $$$ for security and also trying to land the contract for chemical weapons specialists in Iraq.... which they did.
End of story. Get over it.
