16. It was obvious at the time
Edited on Fri Jan-05-07 03:40 PM by bluewave
I was suspicious when all the innuendo seemed to confirm this decision to go to war without solid evidence. Remember the UN? The entirety of the evidence consisted of pictures showing trailers, which Colin Powell said were mobile labs. These looked no different than any other trailer, and he had no evidence to suggest that they weren't just trailers. Then he whipped out the clincher, a garbled tape of an Iraqi saying "did you get the stuff?... -stuff- yeah I got the stuff..." They could have been talking about absolutely anything. They could have been anyone, including non-Iraqis or even an American. Yet it was "proof." That clinched it: anyone watching of average intelligence could realize they were drawing conclusions to fit their assumptions.

Sorry, it was obvious.
