They found nothing in Iraq. No WMD's and no ties to Bin Ladin. If they did Bush would have made sure the news got out. I know about the liberal media (I agree 100% they are a disgrace) but there is still Fox News and other conservative media.
With that said....
I do want you to know that I truly do appreciate your and your family's service. And, I'm sorry for your loss in the towers.
Finding nothing and HAVING nothing are not the same thing. Saddam USED WMD's against the Kurds. When he then proclaimed repeatedly that he intended to use them against anyone else who threatened him, everyone had little choice but to believe him.
I'm NOT sure that the present administration would actually act like many say they would, and use anything found to further their political agenda. Having talked with soldiers who served there, a GREAT deal of information has never made it back. Those soldiers said that they were told not to speak with media outlets, but were not told that they couldn't speak to family and friends about what they saw. Some said that there was a great deal of information that was kept VERY quiet, because, unlike the media, the military did not want to give away what they were doing and where they were doing it. After idiots like Geraldo specified WHERE they were, and gave away military information, and after other media idiots gave away information on the best way to attack up-armored troop carriers, and yet other media idiots gave information on the best way to attack US camps and their vulnerabilities, I'm not sure the military actually gave much information at all to anyone that didn't need it for immediate use.
This war needn't have happened, but it isn't for the reasons that some proclaim.
