Do you honestly think it would have made a difference? The government knew that Saddam had nothing to do with Al-Quaida… and they knew there were no weapons of mass destruction. I mean, all this wasn't a big secret… The UN always said there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and every expert on the middle east said that it is very unlikely that Saddam had anything to do with Al-Quaida.
The US government wanted this war - reasons are pretty obvious. It's what all governments do - they manipulate people. And they'll get away with it… that's really the sad part. I mean Kissinger got the Nobel Peace Price - if that isn't ironic I don't know what is.
