22. Yes, many gave Bush

the benefit of the doubt, then changed their minds...

"Mr. President, when I vote to give the president of the United States the authority to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein; because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat and a grave threat to our security and that of our allies in the Persian Gulf region, I will vote, because I believe it is the best way to hold Saddam Hussein accountable." .... John Kerry

And Greenwald and Franken, unlike those who actually voted approval, didn't have access to the 93 page intelligence report that contained: "dissents from agencies questioning some of the more sweeping conclusions. For example, the State Department said the evidence that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear program was "inadequate."
