According to an interview with former Treasure Secretary Paul O’Neill, the Bush administration was planning an invasion of Iraq practically from January 20, 2000. O’Neill states that Bush and other advisors wanted to remove Hussein from power, regardless of whether or not there were actual weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
The interesting part of this story is that the White House is not denying what O’Neill has said. Instead, they are throwing out sound bites, like, Scott McClellan saying “what’s important is the reality of the results the administration is achieving for the American people.”
Attacking a nation for no valid reason is definitely a result of this administration, but I don’t see anything that this achieves. Other than to turn America into the bad guy.
