CLEARLY KNEW THROUGH IRAQ'S OWN FOREIGN MINISTER THAT
SADDAM HUSSEIN DID NOT POSSES WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION
Wow, all this on NBC Nightly News! What's next, reporting on the Downing Street Memos? How about reporting on "The Project for a New American Century?" Wouldn't that be something? They could highlight the stated motivations for war by the senior members of this administration years before 9/11. Maybe they could interview the men and women who were on the ground in Iraq in 1991 and ask them if they saw thousands of tons of weapons being destroyed? As part of the report they could go back and interview the U.N. weapons inspectors who, despite surprise inspections, found nothing.
Who knows, maybe they could even report on the debilitating sanctions that crippled Iraq for 12 years. They could report on how those sanctions rendered the Iraqi government powerless to even feed their own people. Hey, they could even do an entire expose on how our government imposed a no-fly zone on the skies directly above Iraqi soil and how Iraq wasn't even a threat to countries directly abutting it.
But the truth is that this NBC report is but particles of dust atop the overwhelming mountain of evidence that is already available for any thinking person to conclude that WE WERE AND CONTINUE TO BE LIED TO BY OUR GOVERNMENT!
