GUEST,282RA BS: Impeachment Action Needed (quickly) (280* d) RE: BS: Impeachment Action Needed (quickly) 20 Nov 07

I very highly suggest to everyone to read every word of those links I provided in my last two posts. They are phenomenal, shocking, eye-popping revelations.

Blix called the accusations made in 1441 "baseless" and that Powell was denouncing Iraq's written proof of disarming as being recycled pap from earlier sources before most of material had been translated. Blix stated that 500 to 600 pages had yet to be translated when Powell made his assertions. Powell's assertion could only have been a lie. And it was. Iraq had disarmed.

Ritter states that disarming Iraq was never the objective. Regime change was the objective. Bush I had made the mistake of pronouncing Saddam another Hitler and was therefore obliged to take him out. He and James Baker announced that even if Iraq met with all the provisions laid out by the UN, which promised the ending of sanctions, the sanctions would not be lifted. Only the removal of Hussein would lift them. Yet the Gulf War fell through and Saddam held onto power. The CIA announced that sanctions would be so crippling that Saddam would fall within 6 months but Saddam held on. He became an embarrassment and the govt wanted him gone. When Clinton took over in 92, he at first tried to lift the sanctions and get Iraq back on its feet but Congressmen, both dem and pub, became extremely upset because they had painted him as Hitler to their constituents and promised his immediate removal. Clinton reversed himself and started talking about Saddam rearming. It wasn't true and Ritter knew for a fact Iraq had no missile system by 92 but Clinton was making accusations after that. Neither Ritter nor Blix ever believed a word of it.

It's very fascinating reading!!!
