Truest statement of the week II

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Powell and the others who had manufactured from whole cloth the reasons for their war, would repeatedly employ transparent efforts to shore up their ebbing hopes for favorable legacies. Employing verbal devices, they would slyly switch the reasons for the invasion, moving away from their earlier certainties of WMDs to espousing new rhetoric about Saddam’s “plans” or “ambitions” to develop such weapons.
