At over 1-1/2 hours long, WMD : The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein is not your typical YouTube video. It is however, a great reminder of how we got into Iraq and why.

I would guess I disagree with 90% of what is posted over at Washington Outsiders. I’d guess there is another 5-7% that I find thought provoking and worthy of a slower read, health-care being one of those items, strip mining mountains another and I’m sure there were more. Humor makes up the last percent or two or three and their recent post attention: true patriots falls right in there.

In hindsight, this is another example of the great vision he had. We should continue to listen.
Over 200 years ago the founding fathers of this nation declared their independence from and subsequently fought against an oppressive government for their God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
