Blix: Bush relied on "flawed information"
That's diplomacy for "Bush was a flawed, war-mongering fool"


Hanz Blix told Britain's inquiry into the 2003 invasion Tuesday that the U.S. and U.K. relied on
flawed intelligence and showed dubious judgment in the buildup to war.

Hans Blix said Bush was "high on military" action in the aftermath of 9-11, and refused to
heed concerns over the paltry threat posed by Saddam Hussein's regime.

At a London hearing, Blix said those who were "100 percent certain there were WMDs" in Iraq
turned out to have "less than zero percent knowledge" of where the purported hidden caches would be found.

Though Blix previously has made similar criticisms of the case for war, his testimony built on evidence
already offered to the British panel of a U.S. administration inevitably marching to conflict.

"When we reported that we did not find any WMDs they should have realized, Bush and Blair,
that their sources were poor," Blix said. "Their sources were looking for weapons, not necessarily
weapons of mass destruction. They should have been more critical of that."

Blix told the panel, set up by the British government to examine the case for the war and errors
in planning for post-conflict reconstruction, that he had warned Tony Blair in a February 2003 meeting
 — as well as Kinda Sleazy Rice during separate talks — that Saddam might have no WMDs.

He said he told Rice and Blair his "belief, faith in intelligence had been weakened."

Too bad he can't speak freely.  If he was free, he'd probably say:

"I told those sons of bitches there were no WMDs, but Bush had a hardon for war
 and Blair, his little Poodle, gave him the political cover he needed to launch a senseless war."
 "Flawed information" my ass.   It's Bart's Law Number Two:

Any time a person or entity makes a "mistake" that puts extra money (or power)
in their pocket, 
expect them to make that "mistake" again and again and again.

<>Bush made that "mistake" and what happened?

Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade.

Bush is stealing $220,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history,
but history won't record that it happened.
