Pants on fire

Global Security Newswire reports:

Former U.S. Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said yesterday that the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq might not have occurred if the United States had known there were no weapons of mass destruction in the country, Agence France-Presse reported.

“‘I’m not sure based on the evidence we know now that we could have been absolutely convinced that there was no danger, absolutely no danger,’ Wolfowitz, a chief promoter of the invasion who is now president of the World Bank, said at the National Press Club. ‘If somebody could have given you a Lloyd’s of London guarantee that weapons of mass destruction would not possibly be used, one would have contemplated much more support for internal Iraqi opposition and not having the United States take the job on the way we did.'”

Western governments and intelligence knew that WMD were unlikely to be found in Iraq and deliberately hyped the threat for political gain.

So, how does Wolfowitz explain Bush administration “errors”?

“Well, I don’t have to, and it’s not just because I don’t work for the U.S. government anymore. In my old job, I didn’t have to. I was like everyone else outside the intelligence community.”

Wolfowitz is a liar. History has already judged him harshly. He’s just another radical Jewish ideologue with too much time in academia and wet dreams over Israel.
