Any pretense that the Iraq war was a reluctant one, that it was only after every avenue was tried, etc. is a total lie. If anyone had doubts about this, Bob Graham's statement on Meet the Press yesterday, and in his book, should put it to rest.
Graham, in his new book, Intelligence Matters, said that a year prior to the Iraq War, Gen. Tommy Franks, heading the army in Afghanistan, had told him he was distressed by orders to pull troops out of Afghanistan to prepare to deploy in Iraq.
Kerry has asked for an investigation of this charge. Let us see whether the Democrats have the tenacity to keep at it.
