This does not mean Saddam was not a fucker and did not need to be removed from power.
All it means is we used a BS excuse to go in there, which is in fact wrong to do.
I am glad he is out of power, and paid for his crimes. I am embarrassed we lied to do it.
We lied? Or Sadaam's eternal threats and use of wmd's against his own people was a testimony? Or refusing UN inspections was confirmation? Or the wmd's were taken to other sympathetic countries in the 9 months before we acted?
Your assumption of lying is not fully supported. Don't be too embarrassed - it makes you sound like a liberal whiner.
