Ted, remember that we ALL thought Saddam had those WMDs.  He consistently thwarted the inspectors and flouted the U.N. mandates.  BOTH democrats AND republicans voted in favor of authorizing the use of force.  We were all victimized by a less than sterling intelligence apparatus, but mind you, it was DEMOCRATS, specifically FRANK CHURCH, who castrated our intelligence capabilities years ago.  For you to place all the blame for the resulting intel problems at the feet of the Bush administration is either disingenuous or simply ignorant.

Won't you research a bit more thoroughly before advocating on behalf of America's enemies in the future?

Peace out.

  Jim et. al.

  I heard about the ABC docudrama on terrorism, and the factual errors it contains.  As long as people know it is fictionalized, that's one thing, but many may assume it is based on solid vetted historical research.
  It is amazing how many US citizens still believe that the 9/11 attacks were related to Saddam and his supposed connections to Al Qaeda... And disturbing to witness how easily public opinion can be manipulated, indeed is still being manipulated, by half truths and falsehoods from the government. 

  The "Weapons of Mass Distraction" function very well!

    The current number of Americans killed in Iraq is 2666. The total number 
    of casualties of Americans is about 20,000. Every vision2020 member
    should listen to Sen Carl Leven explain the timeline in the report. The
    report is damning even with the redactions. I am sure you can Sen Leven 
    on the CSPAN website. You can also find the entire report.

    The facts are that Saddam had nothing whatsoever to do with  911.  There
    were no significant weapons of mass destruction and due diligence would
    have made it obvious even at the time. In 2003, 70% of Americans
    believed there was a link between Saddam and
    911.(http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2003-09-06-poll-iraq_x.htm ).
    Today that figure is still 43%
    (http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/06/iraq.poll/index.html). Meanwhile
    the war profiteers are making a killing, literally and figuratively. 

    The American people still believe the lie. They believe that Bush's
    illegal war of aggression in Iraq, estimated to have killed between
    40,000 and 250,000 Iraqi people, not to mention our own people, is
    somehow connected to 911. You may close your ears and eyes, but the lie 
    remains. The truth is that our president and his cabinet should be
    impeached, tried for treason, and tried as a war criminal on a multitude
    of levels. And we are NOT safer.....

    This past weekend and Monday, with the two-part Disney/ABC docu-drama 
    about 911 and Bush's free 15 minute speech about 911 on Monday, the
    propaganda lie will continue. I am glad you are not one of the 43% that
    believe it and I hope other vision2020 members also don't support it.
    Our country will only survive if people wake to the facts. To help
    others wake up, I challenge them to watch this link in
    entirety.http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/41418/ . The anger shown is
    appropriate to the circumstances. If you are any less angry, you are 
    either a stooge, a sheep, or lemming.

    It is time to get angry. It is not a pleasant thing--but it is time
    because--our country, as we know it, depends on it.

    I want to be fair, can anyone give me a rational reason why Bush should 
    not be tried for treason? For lying about getting us into a war that
    killed 2666 Americans and wounded 20,000, waging an illegal war of
    aggression, and for not upholding the constitution?
