Where's the evidence?

NRO claims the Iraq Attaq was part of the War on Terror, not Bush's War in Error, because Iraq was up to its eyeballs in promoting terrorism.

Yet, the Bush Administration has almost the entire leadership of Saddam's regime in custody. They've been sweating some of them for over two years. Yet, have you seen any televised confessions of top Baathist officials to their involvement with anything the Bushies claimed justified this war? We know the WMD was all lies, but what about Atta's supposed meeting with an Iraqi diplomat in Prague or the practice hijacking camp or all the rest of the fairy tales we were fed? I don't even think the story that Saddam had doubles was true.

What, do you think some Baathists wouldn't sell out their colleagues out to get more favorable treatment for themselves? They're Arabs! Of course they would ... if they had anything to sell. But, they don't.

The truths is, it was almost all lies. And we ate them up, and even after we knew they were lies, we re-elected the liars.

For some reason, I am reminded of Wordsworth's great poem, "London, 1802:"

Milton! thou should’st be living at this hour:
England hath need of thee: she is a fen
Of stagnant waters: altar, sword, and pen,
Fireside, the heroic wealth of hall and bower,
Have forfeited their ancient English dower
Of inward happiness. We are selfish men;
Oh! raise us up, return to us again;
And give us manners, virtue, freedom, power.
