Check out Bush’s War on Frontline

March 31, 2008

I’ve been watching Frontline’s recent production, Bush’s War, which begins with 9/11 and proceeds with an investigative report of the drumbeats that led to the invasion in Iraq. It’s hard to watch it and believe that Bush and Cheney weren’t impeached for the blatant lies and disinformation used to strong-arm Congress into going to war.

Another merit of the program is that it shows the complex and often strained relationships of the different players in Washington.

    I’m no Bushite but the truth is only Congress can declare war – and both Republicans and Democrats called war on Iraq.

    On top of that, the Democrat congress has now been supporting their war for over a year now.

    Apparently you are a ‘Bushite,’ JustaDoc. If you actually watch the documentary you’ll see why things went down the way they did. Even staunchly anti-war members of Bush’s own administration (Colin Powell being one among many) were literally shut out of much of the run up to the war and then eventually pushed out when they forced their way back in to the discussion to try to avoid the catastrophe we have today – 4,000+ dead U.S. troops and hundreds of thousands of dead and maimed Iraqi civilians. Not to mention the tens of thousands of permanently damaged U.S. troops.

    The documentary is called Bush’s War for a reason and it’s not bias. It’s because this is, as anyone who watches this can plainly see, Cheney and Rumsfeld’s war that they very successfully sold to an eager Bush.
