Bill McCormick is the new US ambassador to New Zealand. He owns a bunch of restaurants, and he also donated to the campaigns of both Bush Senior and Bush Junior. Which explains more about his appointment to ambassador than his grasp on current affairs:
The restaurant tycoon appointed by George W. Bush brushed aside the fact that no weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq since the invasion began and yesterday declared of Saddam Hussein: "Every intelligence network knew this fellow had weapons of mass destruction."No, no they didn't. You also don't just magic away weapons of mass destruction.
Although I always thought there was a sort of catch 22 situation with those unfound weapons:
1. If America thought Iraq actually had weapons of mass destruction then they wouldn't have invaded, because then Iraq would have used those weapons (see Korea, North).
2. If America didn't think Iraq had any weapons of mass destruction then they would have planted some to justify invading the country.
So when they didn't find any weapons of mass destruction I thought America must have really thought those WMD existed, but if they thought they existed then why did they invade?
