Saturday is the 8th anniversary of the Iraq War.
Do you remember all the liars who sold it? Do you remember Kenneth Adelman? From Wikipedia:
Adelman wrote a pair of editorial columns regarding the Iraq War in the Washington Post in February 2002 and April 2003 entitled, respectively, "Cakewalk In Iraq" and "'Cakewalk' Revisited". In the first he argued that the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq would be a simple matter to accomplish: "I believe that demolishing Hussein's military power and liberating Iraq would be a cakewalk." In the later editorial, published just a few weeks after the invasion, he claimed his vindication and in particular praised key Bush administration players: "My confidence 14 months ago sprang from having worked for Don Rumsfeld three times -- knowing he would fashion a most creative and detailed war plan -- and from knowing Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz well for many years."
Also notable are Adelman's predictions regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Adelman said that weapons were likely to be near Tikrit and Baghdad, "because they're the most protected places with the best troops. I have no doubt we're going to find big stores of weapons of mass destruction."If you do remember him or others, ask yourself who they supported in 2008?
Why did anyone ever doubt Barack was a War Hawk? All of the War Hawks lined up behind him. Not McCain. Behind Barack.
Looks like the War Hawks were a lot smarter than most of the left. (I'm a Green, not a Democrat.)
