With all due respect, Colonel Wilkerson
Everybody in the world did NOT believe that Saddam Hussein had WMDs.
Many "ordinary" Americans like me did NOT believe the propaganda.
And for those who did, it is not an indictment of their intelligence or ability to "think for themselves" that they believed your lies.
The simple fact is that outside of your bubble, we do NOT have direct access to the information you have. Everything we are able to access is filtered through the administration and the media.
It's just that some of us could smell the bs behind the administrations bluster and media cheerleaders. Just like I could smell it behind your bluster tonight on Amy Goodman with Democracy Now.

1. I didn't believe it and neither did the millions who marched in the streets
to prevent the war. The media did everything in its power to sell that war. They ignored the massive protests, although a few years later they did specials on teabagger rallies with ten people involved. Anyone who says that everyone thought there were weapons should be laughed off the air.

3. And the UN Inspector
I forget his name, but definitely remember him saying they hadn't found anything nor any evidence of anything before they were pulled out...job unfinished because W needed had his panties in a bunch and needed his little revenge war.
