    According to Condoleezza Rice

    Last week the former national security advisor had chipped in her two cents about the ongoing struggle in Iraq. She didn't mince her words when she said that bringing democracy to Iraqi people was secondary. The primary objective was “security.” Go figure what that means since a) no WMDs have been found, and b) oops, looks like the entire WMD story was bogus to begin with. The question then arises – if W.'s administration knew about this (and they did since the evidence was manufactured) – why were thousands of American soldiers sent to war that did not need to be? Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and Steve Hughes deliver the funny, while George Jakobson (professor of political science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology) shares his professional opinion.
