    I was hoping--in the face of a surreptitiously released set of videos--that the headline meant they would start releasing videos of meetings. Was a little disappointed to watch that it was only a photo opp with the press.

    As for the meeting in 2013 where the insider said that Bush "defended his decision to start the Iraq War." I supported the decision for the Iraq War; but not for the same reasons others proclaimed. The media was rife with misinformation; not the least of which was "it will be a 5-day war with shock and awe." I knew it would be much, Much longer than that.

    The irony is that Saddam Hussein was "our man"; the US funded his war against Iran just a few years prior to his invasion into Kuwait. Seems like every time the US involves itself picking winners and losers the winners come back to bite us in the behind. Saddam Hussein may not have had the WMD's that the media touted; but do not forget he himself claimed to have them; and threatened to use them against Western nations. He was well known to have used them against his own people. He was most certainly a danger.
