Re: so in spite of everything..... excalibur - 20/04/2004 12:12:54 AM

in spite of the fact that many others have already basically said the same thing you wont believe it? Others who were in the administration?

When someone presents credible evidence either way I will believe it. Just because lots of people have said something doesn't make it true. Furthermore, I could post lots of articles from people who would argue the exact opposite - that wouldn't make them correct either.

You're following their spin on all of this hook line and sinker.

Not at all. Just because I don't believe this article's spin does not automatically mean I agree with the opposing viewpoint.

I'm actually quite surprised that some people think they weren't misled on the Iraq war.

I think we were misled - I just do not believe all the hype and spin surrounding this from either side. However I follow the standard innocent until proven guilty. Therefore Bush and Blair are innocent of deliberately misleading until someone proves otherwise, which no one has. I am not saying they did not deliberately mislead; simply that I am giving them the benefit of the doubt. That doesn't mean they weren't foolish to make WMD such a big issue as I said at the time.
