A look at some Wolfowitz comments on Iraq

Here's the deputy defense secretary, who didn't know how many troops had died in his war, on the non-existent weapons of mass destruction:
They've worked at hiding things very, very deliberately. There's no question in my mind that there was something there. There are just too many pieces of evidence, and we'll get to the bottom of it.--May 31, 2003.
Here's the neo-con junta member who uses spit as hair gel on reasons for his war:
The truth is that for reasons that have a lot to do with the U.S. government bureaucracy, we settled on the one issue that everyone could agree on which was weapons of mass destruction as the core reason, but ... there have always been three fundamental concerns. One is weapons of mass destruction, the second is support for terrorism, the third is the criminal treatment of the Iraqi people. Actually I guess you could say there's a fourth overriding one which is the connection between the first two. ... The third one by itself ... is a reason to help the Iraqis but it's not a reason to put American kids' lives at risk, certainly not on the scale we did it.--Pentagon transcript of interview with Vanity Fair magazine, May 2003
Here's the PNAC worm who signed on to a report that the US needed a new Pearl Harbor to get us into the middle east, on the occupation of Iraq:
The notion that it would take several hundred thousand American troops just seems outlandish.--March 4, 2003.
And here's the tool of Robber Barons who's going to be in charge of the world bank on how you pay to fix what he broke:
There's a lot of money to pay for this. It doesn't have to be U.S. taxpayer money. We are dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon.--March 27, 2003.
