If only he could take it back….
On January 29, President Bush used his State of the Union address to inform the American public of Iraq’s active nuclear weapons program.
“The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa. Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production. ”
One month ago, Bush complained about the political pundits and congressional members who were expressing doubts that the allied forces would ever find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
And today, the administration acknowledged that Bush never should have stated in his address that Iraq was seeking uranium for it’s nuclear weapons program.
I’m not saying Saddam isn’t a very bad man. I’m not saying that I disagree with taking him out of power. But I do believe the United States went about it the wrong way and in doing so, has lost the goodwill of nations and confidence of the United Nations.
