Lies and Mistakes...

So it turns out that the Bush Administration relied on alternative intelligence to justify invading Iraq. Not only that, the CIA disregarded all existing information when formulating a plan for the invasion. No doubt any reasonable person could see through the hype and rhetoric regurgitated by the Executive branch in the run up to the Iraq war, but now, it seems as though any hope of a successful out come has become lost. One would think that this would be enough for Congress to do America a favor and put this administration out of our misery, but they will likely spin their wheels instead. Kind of makes you wonder if the system still works. What do you think? Should a President get away with lying about the information that was available to justify preemptive military action?
