What a pig
Richard Pearle was on Capitol Hill yesterday, getting his peepee whacked concerning the “intelligence failure” that led to the war in Iraq. He doesn’t seem willing to accept any blame, however:
He disavowed any responsibility for his confident prewar assertions about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, heaping the blame instead on “appalling incompetence” at the CIA. “There is reason to believe that we were sucked into an ill-conceived initial attack aimed at Saddam himself by double agents planted by the regime. And as we now know the estimate of Saddam’s stockpile of weapons of mass destruction was substantially wrong.”
What a lying sack of horse stuff. The CIA wasn’t incompentent. They told you, and Bush, and Powell, the entire bloodhungry gang of thugs that Iraq wasn’t a threat. But an Iraq in control of their own property (oil) and the fear of them going from the dollar to the euro was a threat, and it had to be stopped. People such as this should be tried in international court, particuarly Pearle, who holds no Federal office from which to be impeached.
