As the so-called "intelligence failure" gains press, pundits insist our collective judgment on the war turns on unquestionable proof of WMD.
Never mind 250,000 troops Saddam could have invited in for an inspection until the very day the war commenced instead of running into a spider hole.
Never mind his history of use and proliferation of WMD and genocide. Never mind his Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari's explanation of a very sophisticated system of WMD concealment and hiding.
All spin aside, Saddam's terminally defiant behavior led to his necessary removal. Gaddafi's behavior in Libya ever since is living testimony.
