Find the Lie...

Below are two paragraphs from a CNN story.
(CNN.com)Bush: Iraq war plans memo wrong

Blair - "And the fact is, we decided to go to the United Nations and went through that process, which resulted in the November 2002 United Nations resolution to give a final chance to Saddam Hussein to comply with international law. He didn't do so, and that was the reason why we had to take military action."

CNN - "U.N. weapons inspectors were allowed back into Iraq in November 2002 and stayed in the country until March 17, 2003, when Bush issued an ultimatum to Saddam to leave power within 48 hours or face war."

Do these people ever stop with the bullshit??? Bush just claims the memo is false and that it couldn't be further from the truth. Blair offered up the, we went to the United Nations bit and how Saddam Hussein didn't comply with international law. Apparently he had complied, and that the weapons inspectors only bailed when Bush gave a 48 hour ultimatum for Saddam to leave power or face war.

Granted, Saddam is a bad man, but the world is full of bad men. A lot of them are even worse that Saddam. So I'm not going to buy that as an excuse to have invaded Iraq.
