Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


A rose is a rose is a rose. The Hill columnist Josh Marshall chimes in on the evidence the administration has been using to rally Americans to support the war in Iraq.

As has been indicated elsewhere, the President consciously used discredited intelligence in his State of the Union address to convince Americans that Iraq was an immediate threat. Do war supporters really believe Americans would've supported the war if all we had was a few junk parts buried in a backyard?

While I think some critics have gone too far in assuming Iraq did not possess weapons in violation of conditions set forth by the UN in 1991, the argument that this war was about an immediate threat and defending the United States against it isn't holding up.
