Oil for Food 

So, according to the President, the new justification is... wait for it... Saddam was abusing the Oil for Food program, with the intent to, sometime in the future, reconstitute his weapons of mass destruction program.

Boy, they're really reaching. I'm not sure what else to say. Maybe someone should ask them if they're joking...? Do you think it emboldens the enemy to know that our administration appears to smoke crack? I guess this is resoluteness in action, huh? "We need to be firm and resolute when we talk about the War on Terror. And when our flimsy justifications fall down and reveal our neo-Imperialism, we'll be resolute and come up with justifications that are so completely ridiculous that the terrorists will never be emboldened!"

What shocks me most about this is that they actually said it. They actually said that the war was justified because Saddam Hussein was monkeying around with an oil-for-food program. 1067 Coalition soldiers, $200, the goodwill of much of the world, our credibility in the world, all that was worth it, says Bushco. This is the best that they can come up with - and its criminally stupid.

And sorry for co-opting your blog, Tony, but these things are important, and well, you cannot stay quiet about some things.
