    Default More proof Bush wacked and company lied to us about Iran

    An administration that had cited Iran?s pursuit of nuclear weapons as the rationale for an aggressive foreign policy ? as an attempt to head off World War III, as President Bush himself put it only weeks ago ? now has in its hands a classified document that undercuts much of the foundation for that approach.

    So, then what is Bush's motive for an aggressive foreign policy?

    I think Big needs to stop reading the NYTimes and start reading something with credibility.

    Big, there is a difference between being wrong and lying.

    Have someone stuff your stocking with "Legacy Of Ashes", by Tim Weiner if you want to read a history of the CIA's success (or failure) in predicting events in foreign countries.

    You can't believe how often our spooks have said "No way there will be an uprising" in the morning, only to have an uprising occur in the afternoon. Same thing with their appraisals of nuclear weapons, etc... It's hard to believe how inaccurate our information is at any one time, and the President and his cabinet have to sort through massive amounts of white noise.

    So who will reimburse Iran for all the loss of revenue due to meaningless sanctions the last couple of years?

    Wait, I thought you were anti-globalization? Why would you want the US to have any sort of trade agreements w/Iran? Don't you want each country to produce and distribute only within its own borders?

    Or, are you selectively choosing where the US should become involved, based on your bias against the US?

    Iran still deserved the sanctions. I hope the sanctions continue.
