"...Saddam had no WMD, had no role in 9/11, did not attack us, did not threaten us, and did not want war with us..." This was of no consequence for the NEOCONS whatsoever. They dragged Uncle Sap into this quagmire just the same and they are doing it again with IRAN...
Ten years ago today, U.S. air, sea and land forces attacked Iraq. And the great goals of Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Destroy the chemical and biological weapons Saddam Hussein had amassed to use on us or transfer to al-Qaida for use against the U.S. homeland.

Exact retribution for Saddam's complicity in 9/11 after we learned his agents had met secretly in Prague with Mohamed Atta.

Create a flourishing democracy in Baghdad that would serve as a catalyst for a miraculous transformation of the Middle East from a land of despots into a region of democracies that looked West.

Not all agreed on...
