Comments: Organizer of Told CIA’s Most Blatant Lie about Iraq and WMD

I am just so so disgusted and sickened with all the lying, warring and torturing, I do not know where to turn for relief.

Why does he only say "we"? Is he part of the Borg?

Technically, they're correct in that not all of the chemical weapons were destroyed.

Recently, big alarms were raised in conservative media about ISIL finding a cache of chemical weapons in Iraq and the true believers kept tossing that out there in every social media site they could as justification for Bush and Cheney's war.

In reality, ISIL came upon a bunker with a stash of old Chemical warfare shells that were so rusty and considered so unstable as to be unsafe to actually destroy. Instead, that bunker was sealed with the blessings of the US, UK and UN inspectors.

At least, that was the understanding I had of the remnants of Saddam's WMD program....
