Lots of Good Targets

Well, I guess the current US government is now well on its way to proof that you can't lie to all the people all the time...

Here's a quote from a 60 Minutes interview with Richard Clarke, a former White House terrorism advisor.

"Rumsfeld was saying we needed to bomb Iraq....We all said, 'but no, no. Al Qaeda is in Afghanistan," recounts Clarke, "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].'"

That sounds like Exhibit A for a future war crimes tribunal.
