Maybe even reasoning. Perhaps the government should just be able to get on with whatever it is without pesky questions being asked. If people don't care, then it shouldn't matter.
Read the thread, Earnie. If you will, you will see that the Discovery Times special about Saddam painted him as the vicious monster that he really is, and that is why I believe the war was justified. Saddam is out of power. That = good, not bad. Look at WW2 - America got involved because Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, not because Hitler was executing Jews. But the war stopped Hitler. That's a good thing.

As for the WMD, the American, Russian, British, and Israeli intelligence agencies all reported that Saddam had WMD.
We still don't know that he didn't; Charles Duelfer himself noted that in the weeks leading up to the war, big trucks were observed transporting large amounts of "unknown material" from Iraq to Syria. It is much more plausible to me that he got rid of the WMD before the war than 4 countries' intelligence agencies being completely wrong.
