Going into Iraq

The Bush administration decided they wanted to invade Iraq. They told the intelligence agencies to give them evidence that would justify an invasion. They sold that evidence very hard to the American people, and used it to justify invading Iraq. That evidence then turned out to be bogus. The point at which people in the Bush administration figured out that this evidence wasn’t true doesn’t really matter. What matters is that they didn’t care, because they weren’t gong to war because of the evidence, they were talking about the evidence because they wanted to go to war.
