Another White House whistleblower – Ex-Bush aide: Iraq war planning began after 9/11 – Mar 20, 2004

Quote: “Rumsfeld was saying we needed to bomb Iraq … We all said, ‘but no, no, al-Qaeda is in Afghanistan,'” Clarke said in the interview. “And Rumsfeld said, ‘There aren’t any good targets in Afghanistan, and there are lots of good targets in Iraq.’ I said, ‘Well, there are lots of good targets in lots of places, but Iraq had nothing to do with [the September 11 attacks].'”

This is the second former White House official to blow the whistle on this whole fiasco. Time for new leadership. Can we please have an administration that is not almost entirely staffed by ignorant war-mongering pathological liars for once? No?
