London: Bush’s “Flypaper Theory� is Blown to Pieces

Arianna Huffington does a fine job pointing out the absolutely ridiculous contradictory Iraq war justifications currently being pitched by the Bush team. Of course, these are only the latest in a long line of justifications for the war. Remember Weapons of Mass Destruction?

London: Bush’s “Flypaper Theoryâ€? is Blown to Pieces: ”
