CLAIMS IRAQ WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH SADDAM STILL IN POWER (!)
President Bush continues to get hammered over the lies that led the majority of Americans, and more than 98% of America's senators, to support the War On Iraq.
A new Senate report goes into exhaustive detail as it demolishes the Bush Co. 'Case For War', and the release of the report has prompted the powerful Senator John Rockerfeller to make some extraordinary claims. Including that Iraq would be better off with Saddam Hussein still in power.

"He would have been in control of that country but we wouldn't have depleted our resources preventing us from prosecuting a war on terror which is what this is all about."
Republicans say there was flawed intelligence to be sure, but they insist there was no attempt to mislead the public.
"The absolute cynical manipulation, deliberately cynical manipulation, to shape American public opinion and 69 percent of the people, at that time, it worked, they said 'we want to go to war,'" said Rockerfeller.
