  • Mike

    @ Mark2 – where was it honest?

  • Mark2

    @Mike “We all thought he had WMD”

    LOL…you’re a tool. Why did we think he had WMDs? That documentary goes into detail as how our Government sold us that load of crap. Apparently the same crap you still believe.

  • Mark2

    @Mike

    Hey, have you found those WMDs yet…lol.

  • Cathy

    Mark2, Gov. Scott is only approving a bill what will expire in three years. For the first three years the federal government pays for the expansion. So he is just going to try the feds money for three years.

    But hey Gov Scott is doing what republicans do all the time, it’s called compromise. I know that’s a strange word for you Obama lovers. So, I’ll say it a little slower C O M P R O M I S E. That’s what grown-ups and REAL leaders do.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    That was a pretty big lie that all the governments, except the French, plus the Clinton administration were in on. My bigger issue was the lack of an Intel shakeup after we were wrong. You would think some heads should have rolled

  • Mark2

    @Bobby

    A lot of people were allowed to retire as usual. Believe it or not, I blame the intelligence community even more than Bush and Cheney. Bush and Cheney had their own agendas but it would take the intelligence community to sign off on it. Yes, several intel personnel came out with the truth after the WMDs weren’t discovered. However, there should’ve been more whistleblowers prior to the Iraq war.

  • 1966

  • Cathy

    Mark2, What was the motive for the war in Iraq? And why is it more important to dig into a ten year old story, then to dig into the Benghazi video tape lie?

    The Obama administration lied to the American people about the attack in Benghazi. They knew from the beginning it wasn’t caused because of the video. It was a lie because they were worried it would hurt Obama’s re-election.

    Why is a ten year old lie by people who are no longer in charge, more important then a lie that is only six months old done by people who are still running the country?

  • Mike

    @ Mark2 – usually your retorts have more substance. I’m disappointed in the ‘Hey, have you found those WMDs yet?” The argument I’ve been consistenly making is that Saddam was very successful in fooling everyone into believing he had WMDs (when in fact he didn’t have any) – beginning with the Clinton Administration. The argument that ‘Bush lied’ is misrepresentation of the facts unless, of course, everyone now wants to say that the Clinton Administration and all the other major intelligence agencies were lying. (The French actually believed he had WMD but believed he would only use them if invaded. The French, somewhat correctly, believed he had them soley as a deterent for Iran.) The Left can’t have it both ways.

  • AppleStinx

    Mike wrote: “…We all thought he [Saddam] had WMD…]

    As a matter of fact he had WMD, which he used on the Kurds.

  • Mark2

    @Cathy “What was the motive for the war in Iraq? And why is it more important to dig into a ten year old story, then to dig into the Benghazi video tape lie?”

    -You’ll have to ask Bush and Cheney…only they really know. You might want to start with Bush’s own comments about Saddam…”After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad.” As far as Cheney goes, you might want to start with Halliburton.

    -It’s the 10th anniversry of the U.S. invasion of Iraq…that’s why.

  • Mark2

    @Mike “The argument I’ve been consistenly making is that Saddam was very successful in fooling everyone into believing he had WMDs”

    No, our government was very successful in making us believe that he had WMDs. You need to watch the documentray again and actually listen this time. There was no reason for us to invade Iraq…even many Republicans have come to that conclusion. Apparently you’re still living in la-la land.

  • Matthew

    The argument I’ve been consistenly making is that Saddam was very successful in fooling everyone into believing he had WMDs

    No, the controversy here is that he WASN’T fooling everyone, there were many members of the intelligence community that did not believe there was enough credible evidence to link Saddam to WMD development. Also, I’d love to know what we gained by ‘winning’ Iraq, other than strengthening Iran’s position in the region, while simultaneously throwing our own blood and treasure at several years of Whack-A-Mole counterinsurgency.

  • Matthew

    Why is a ten year old lie by people who are no longer in charge, more important then a lie that is only six months old done by people who are still running the country?

    Because that ten year old lie cost us $1 trillion, thousands of U.S. soldier and PMC lives, hundreds of thousand Sunni lives, and displaced millions of Sunnis from their homes during the civil war and sectarian cleansing that followed.

  • Mark

    @Mike

    The documentary showed how all the so called evidence they used was from faulty sources and how people told Chenny/Bush it was from faulty sources yet they still went ahead. (this is my opinion then and my opinion still now)Basically the Iraq war was a war that the Military Insdustrial Complex was pushing for and they would find any excuse to do it. When Chenny was trying to push how Iraq somehow has links to Al Queda even I knew that was a bunch of BS(infact Saddam hated Al Queda, so if the enemy of your enemy is you ally, which one of the 2 was a bigger enemy to Bush I ask)

  • Mark2

    @Cathy

    American deaths from Iraq War = 4,488

    Americans deaths from Benghazi = 4

    Yeah, great comparison there Cathy…next!!!

  • tony

    Rand Paul is making the rounds on the networks–basically exposing the scoundrel in the WH,on the sequester Obama proposed and said he would veto any bill to stop the sequester last year and when the Reps agree and compromise he pulls back,he pulled the same stunt with Boehner last year–he has no real interest in fixing anything but himself politically.
    You lefties who worship Obama and adore him, well he aint thinking about you.

    Let’s be honest here, we all know when push comes to shove all these Republican governors are going to give into the Health Care plan. They may talk a tough game about spending but every Governor both Dem and Rep will be first in line when the Federal Government is dishing out the bucks. Beyond that I am guessing their is alot of special interest(medical and insurance) pushing Scott to take the money. He’d be an idiot not to take the cash, that being said he comes off like a hypocrite when he tries to act all tough before taking it.

    As for 3 years from now I am guessing Scott won’t even be Governor 3 years from now

  • Mark

    As for Scott “compromising”. lol

    I dare him not to take the money and stand by his so called beliefs. He ain’t doing anybody in the rest of the country any favors taking it(now the people in his state that is a different question). To try make Scott out like some wonderful man of compromise doing something that he would be an idiot not to is funny as hell.

  • tony

    You know where I stand politically,the Iraq war was the biggest mistake the Republican party has ever made–they havent recovered.
    It is an unwise decision to overthrow any of the less Islamic style governments in favor of who knows what.Saddam Hussein would have acted as a buffer between his mortal enemy Iran.He would have given Acmind’d of Iran something to worry about.
