Never said there wasn't. I clearly recognized the existence of politics when I explained to you that it would NEVER be a bigger motivating factor for the United States, than securing the strategic interests of the United States. Fulfilling military and strategic objectives shares bipartisain support. GOP poll position obviously does NOT. Something you clearly have NO answer for. That is probably why you aren't able to stand behind your ridiculous WMD argument here, instead opting to declare triumph about previous and unrelated argument in leue of defending it. Brilliant ploy though! "Maybe they won't notice my argument here just got completely blasted out of the water if I forget about that and shift the focus onto other previous "victories" instead. They'll think I'm a winner then, right after I just got done getting my arse handed to me!" Actually this is the case with you.. I explained how politics wouldn't motivate the United States as a whole to do things quite to the level that securing strategic military objectives would. You don't have an answer. So what's that? Two things? That's it? Out of how many? 10 things? 12 things? IS THAT IT?!?!?!?? What about that time you said Rumsfeld's lack of interest was "speculation"? I asked you to show me where he showed interest or what he did, and even pointed out his lack of interest based on HIS OWN TESTIMONY.. You ran away, refused to respond, hoping that would be forgotten and sink to the bottom of the page. Battin' practice! What about that time you denied that the 9/11 commission ever acknowledged that they based those chapters on these interrogation reports and even admitted it was hard to get the facts out of them? And then I SHOWED you the passage where they said EXACTLY that. You ran away like a coward, not admitted you were wrong but hoped nobody would notice. Battin' practice! What about when you claimed my stance about whether or not Bush or Rummy should be charged when I never said one way or the other? You were unable to point out where I did.. That was the basis for a pathetic counterargument attempt of yours, which like the others, failed. You ran away. Battin' practice! And now the latest one, where I showed you how your WMD argument falls flat on its face. You ignored the counterargument, instead opting to childishly gloat about previous arguments instead. Battin' practice! Those are four JUST OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.. Double what you came up with. Lord knows how many times I've taken you to school. The Bush photo claim was a blunder on my part. But AT LEAST I HAVE THE BALLS TO ADMIT IT. Unlike you who can't ackownedge ANY of your vast plethora of silly mistakes. And it was a minor detail, and didn't change the actual situation in that Bush carried on with the photo op anyway while he was in the classroom, so didn't much matter. As for flight 93, remember I only claimed I thought this, not that it was a certain absolute fact. Funny though and it shows the hypocracy of you people (besides I gaze at the blue).. You whine about "truthers" being so stubborn, refusing to accept facts, refusing to admit they're wrong, refusing to change their mind etc... Then someone goes and does EXACTLY that, and all you do is THROW IT BACK IN THEIR FACE and go "Na Na na na na" like a LITTLE CHILD.. You should be ASHAMED of the juvenile way you behave and you should GROW UP. Indeed!!! You said something correct here... Going on about how they must ALSO plant WMD's is NOT an argument. Glad to see you admit it. We all know that "validating" the decision by planting WMD's is unecessary, and accomplishes nothing, as they ALREADY have the wars underway.. It was BEFORE the wars they needed to make the case. Yeah how's the official movement going? KSM and the other ALLEGED 9/11 plotters STILL haven't been convicted or proven guilty.. STILL... Coming up on nearly a decade in custody, YOU STILL CAN'T EVEN CONVICT. So I tell you what, as soon as the official movement gains some steam, and brings justice for the 9/11 families finally, THEN you can comment about the truth movement. You thought the White House would be a possible target, hence Cheney being escorted to safety by the SS, but not a schoolhouse in Florida. Patriot911 said they NEVER could have imagined ANY possible targets in DC with the information they had. You going to argue with Patriot911?
