Dean calls for Bush accountability
Howard Dean continues to (IMNSHO) kick much butt and take very brave stances in his bid for the ’04 election, today calling for an independent investigation of Bush and the drive to war with Iraq.
“I think the president owes this country an explanation because what the president said was not entirely truthful, and he needs to explain why that was,” Dean said in an interview with The Associated Press.Dean cited a number of statements made by Bush and other senior administration officials about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the dangers that the regime posed to the United States. The candidate said the claims were made even though officials knew they weren’t true. “We need a thorough look at what really happened going into Iraq,” Dean said. “It appears to me that what the president did was make a decision to go into Iraq sometime in early 2002, or maybe even late 2001, and then try to get the justification afterward.”
p>As far as I’m concerned, Dean is exactly who we need in office. Personally, I’d prefer it if he could swear in tomorrow, but hey, you can’t have everything, right?
