61. You speak of a complete lack of critical thinking
and then you resort to the old argumentum ad populum - 50 million Frenchmen can't be wrong. You really sound awfull silly.

why did 95% of the world not come to the conclusion that they posed a threat to anyone?

I don't know, nor do I particularly care. The Intelligence Committee's concern was to protect the security of the United States. They were provided information that suggested that the security of the United States was indeed threatened by Iraq. And they voted accordingly. The real question is where that information came from, and why and how the Executive promoted it.

Congress is dependent on the Executive for its information. The problem is the Executive, not Congress.
