Smoke and Mirrors

An embarassing, critical look at the evidence linking Saddam's regime to Osama. So, official/popular justifications for war on Iraq are: (1) Saddam backed Osama -- no convicincing evidence exists for this position, far more exists that Saudi Arabia supports his terror organization, (2) Saddam's a murderous psychopath -- granted, and I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to assemble a list of equally blood-soaked despots we aren't threatening with war because they either aren't sitting on oilfields or would actually be able to fight back, (3) is there a 3? I'm not a fan of bloody dictators. I'd love to see Iraq freed from Saddam's reign and given the chance to develop a representative government. I don't believe for a minute that our government has that as a goal any more than it did in Afghanistan.
