I did not realize how easily Bush was able to fool the liberal leadership. Here I was thinking that Bush was an idiot and people like Kerry, Gore, Pelosi, and Clinton were like super-geniuses. Kinda makes you wonder how Pelosi became Speaker and Kerry and Clinton went on to become Secretaries of State despite such clear evidence that they could be taken in by someone no smarter than Bush.
One thing I never understood, though, is how anyone could deny Saddam had WMD's when it was, and is, accepted as fact that he killed hundreds of Kurds with aerially delivered poisonous gas (i.e., a WMD). Is it possible that Saddam just mixed up enough gas to kill one village, and then threw away the recipe?
