US Mired in a Mess of Its Own Making: "First, President George W. Bush, VP Dick Cheney and a coterie of neo-conservatives led by Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle misled Americans into an unprovoked, unnecessary war by claiming Iraq was about to attack the U.S. with nuclear and biowarfare weapons. This was a grotesque lie that anyone with knowledge of strategic weapons knew was arrant nonsense, but few had the courage or honesty to refute. Next, the White House gravely misread the strategic situation by swallowing neo-con assurances the 'liberation' of Iraq would be a cakewalk and oil bonanza."
