Before we invaded Iraq, our politicians told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in great quantities. Secretary of State Colin Powell even went to the United Nations and described Iraq's cache in detail, down to the pound of certain weapons.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld told us that not only did Iraq have these weapons but he knew exactly where they were.
This is why I seriously doubted that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. What our government told us defied logic and common sense.
The United Nations had inspectors in Iraq looking for weapons. They couldn't find any. Logic and common sense, then, would have dictated that our government tell those inspectors where to look. After all, if we knew, why wouldn't we share our knowledge with the inspectors?We wouldn't, of course, because we didn't know.
