Dowd: ‘It’s About What We Knew Then’
Maureen Dowd correctly points out that we knew then we shouldn’t have gone to war in Iraq.
It is simply not true, as Republican presidential aspirant Scott Walker said on Friday, that “any president would have likely taken the same action Bush did with the information he had.”
That’s not giving enough credit to W. and his frothing band of Reservoir Dogs.
It took a Herculean effort of imagination, manipulation and deception to concoct “the information” that propelled the invasion, occupation and destruction of a country that had nothing to do with 9/11…
And consider this: Jeb hasn’t even been asked any questions yet about W.’s dark contributions on waterboarding, the deficit and the near-total collapse of the American economy.
