Do you believe the news media

Published:

Viewing a recent discussion on WMD in Iraq I took a search on the subject to see for myself. Obviously we know there are probably 100s of articles disputing the fact of no WMDs found. Found is the word. Wether they were useable in their original condition is not the point. They were found according to the articles.

As far as I am concerned they were apparently found. I also think our forces in uniform know more about this matter than our news media does.

I pulled articles from supposed reputable news sites not from other sites.

Don't let them re-write history. WMD were not found. If they had been found it would have been headline news for weeks. Bush and Rumsfeld have both publicly stated said that no WMD were ever found.

Looks like we can not believe the news media on whatever they report then.

Saddam used Sarin to gas an entire town of Kurds. Then again the pictures were probably fake. And now you have the Iranian a$$ho1e theocracy not building a nuke, it is all a lie, Iran doesn't exist, actually nothing to see here.

Rick, Bush and Cheney made those statements before WMD's were found.

And the reason very few people read of them being found was due to the MSM refusing to report the fact. Remember, Bush was still in the White House. The MSM was not about to report any favorable news about Bush.

As to Bush's comment about WMD's being in Saddam's power, read what Bush said. To paraphrase, "THE BRITISH HAVE REPORTED that Saddam has WMD in his possession". That to me was not a lie. The British did report that. The fact Bush accepted their assessment on face value was the fault. What were our own CIA saying? That has yet to be reported.

I think the devil ... er ... media tell 99% truth.
The question is would you knowingly eat a meal consisting of "only 1% poison"?
I believe they found WMD in Iraq. Cops "find" evidence all the time.
What few ask is where Saddam got his "toys" from in the first place.
