    ... the statement that "every other nation knew we were right and agreed with our stance" is only defensible because they were piggy-backing off of the bilge that Cheney stovepiped from the CIA and leaked to them?

    Or is my memory playing tricks on me?

    Not every country's intelligence apparatus could possibly have been sophisticatred enough to have done its own independent investigation into this complicated issue.

    If I'm full of it, someone please tell me.

      Tony Blair was the ultimate shrub lapdog.  France basically told shrub to bugger off.  If every nation agreed re: the WMDs why was the "Coalition of the Willing" packed with countries that only get mentioned in Geography contests, Jeopardy, and by shrub and company?

      Every other nation means China, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, Biafra, Myanmar . . . .

        Canada told the shrub to take a hike on the Iraqi adventure as well.

          our Prime Minister Jean Chretien used at the time about the "evidence" for WMDs was "not credible".
