Says Rockefeller (D-W, Va.):
"The absolute cynical manipulation, deliberately cynical manipulation, to shape American public opinion and 69 percent of the people, at that time, it worked, they said 'we want to go to war, including me. The difference is after I began to learn about some of that intelligence I went down to the Senate floor and I said 'my vote was wrong'".Rockefeller went a step further. He says the world would be better off today if the United States had never invaded Iraq — even if it means Saddam Hussein would still be running Iraq.
"[Saddam] wasn't going to attack us. He would've been isolated there. He would have been in control of that country but we wouldn't have depleted our resources preventing us from prosecuting a war on terror which is what this is all about."Imagine that. A Washington beltline insider actually trying to seperate Bush's "warn tear" and the war in Iraq. What can possibily happen next?
