Database assembles U.S. warnings of Saddam threat
I found this article interesting because it shows how hard the White
House worked to get this war going, to say nothing of the methods they
employed, or the end result. I can't help but think if they had been
so enthusiastic about a domestic agenda, if they had put this much work
into economic independence from oil, maybe some of our current financial crisis could have been averted. If they had tackled domestic and economic issues they way they went after Saddam, who knows..
