In a speech this past Wednesday the former chief weapons inspector had some unflattering things to say about the War in Iraq:
Former chief weapons inspector to Iraq Scott Ritter said Wednesday that President Bush created an extremely turbulent situation in Iraq.
“President Bush poses the greatest threat to America that we have seen in modern history,” Ritter told an audience in the University Union's Potomac Lounge.
Though his accusations were extreme, Ritter— an unabashedly conservative Republican—argued they are not unfounded.
Ritter, a former intelligence officer for the US Marine Corps who served as the UN's Chief Weapons Inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, said the U.S. government “brought us into this war on false pretenses.”
Although the Bush administration says it is looking for weapons of mass destruction, Ritter explained, the government has a hidden agenda.
“Our real policy has been regime change,” Ritter said. “Our plan was to dethrone Saddam, not to find weapons of mass destruction.”...
I guess the question now is who isn't saying these things? (BushCo excluded)
