Is he incompetent, clueless, lying? Why has President Bush--once again--asserted that he went to war because Iraq refused to allow weapons inspectors into the country? Last Wednesday, Bush went on about how "it was [Saddam's] choice to make, and he did not let us in."

Bush made the same false statement, last July, with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan at his side. "We gave [Saddam} a chance to allow the inspectors in," Bush declared, "and he wouldn't let them in. And, therefore, after a reasonable request, we decided to remove him from power."

These statements defy rational explanation. As Democrats.com observed last summer--after launching a website petition to declare Bush insane under the 25th amendment--"everyone in the world knows that Hussein allowed a fully-equipped team of UN inspectors to comb every inch of his country...The only conclusion we can draw is that Bush has lost touch with reality. In other words, he has gone mad."

Letting them into the country, and allowing them to conduct full inspections are two different things. NOBODY on any of the teams, or in the UN said that Hussain was being as cooperative as the sanctions required. Just letting them into the country wasn't enough. Hussein was still doing everything in his power to try and hide SOMETHING. Who knows, maybe he was trying to hide the fact that he did NOT have WMD's. But for whatever reason, he was still being uncooperative, and that's all the President legally required to go to war.
