Think Progress has an amusing piece about how (surprise, surprise!) the Bush administration has completely reversed itself on its rationale for invading Iraq (emphasis added):
On day that the United States invaded Iraq, President Bush said that we were doing so “reluctantly” but that “our purpose was clear” — to get rid of Saddam’s “weapons of mass murder.” (Note: Bush did not say “purposes.” According to Bush, there was only one purpose.)
Yesterday on Brit Hume, he said he would have invaded even if he knew there were no weapons of mass destruction. Would have been nice if he’d mentioned this earlier.
Cue numerous wankers harrumphing about supporting the troops, spreading democracy and lots and lots of purple fingers.
