General Powell claims that he was duped by the Weapons of Mass Destrution intelligence supplied to him prior to his speech to the United Nations pleading the US's case to go to war against Iraq. There were, as I recall, a number of intelligence agencies throughout the world stating that this information was suspect. They included: France, which was attacked by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and the Bush Administration as cowards; American Intelligence officers, European agents and American political pundits that questioned the validity of this information.
Rumsfeld now admits in his new book that it was the "intention" of Iraq to acquire WMD that triggered the war. I thought then, as I do now, that it was Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld, Karl Rove and others that wanted to quarantee "W" an undeserved second term in office and make HALLIBURTON BILLIONS that was the real reason.
WHY ISN'T CHENEY TRIED AS A 'WAR CRIMINAL' and General Powell required to testify on how he was 'duped'
