. 1. "If we knew the truth about WMDs" Forget the WMD bullshit and accept the fact that the invasion was for oil, oil , oil. Rove is a political bottom-feeder trying to justify the crime of the century. He should explain why the USA has been unable to defeat a country smaller than Texas which had its armed forces decimated during the gulf war, sans an air force and monitored so tightly by no-fly zones that an oil-for-food program was set up so Iraq could purchase food and medicines for its people. The Bush/Cheney administration raped a sovereign nation to steal its natural resources and even the bottom-feeders are culpable. The "boot-on-the-neck" (surge), the wanton killing of woman and children "suspected" of insurgency (a term that Rumsfeld tried to change because it means: RISING IN REVOLT ) following an illegal invasion of their homeland (per Kofi Annan) are war crimes of varying descriptions: genocide, crimes against humanity and simply murder to sate greed. If the USA and the world at large can't address these crimes in a duly constitued court of law, it portends a dismal future for us all.

I certainly hope hat the Obama administration appoints a truth commission with subpoena power to get to the bottom of the crimes that have been committed over the last eight years. Failure to hold the guilty accountable conveys upon their acts an assumption of legality.
