YOU DON'T SAY

Old news to the conspiracy theorists, sure (are they ever surprised?), but the question is "what did the president want and when did he want it?" If it was just "members" of the administration, there might be a slap on the wrist: you expect people at that level to have some ideas about what they want to accomplish when they walk in the door, right? But if the President were involved in discussions regarding regime change in Iraq before 2002, then he's going to have some real explaining to do. All along I've been pooh-poohing the pseudo-psychoanalysis "finish what Dad started" theory, but if he really came in with Iraq on his to-do list then I have to rethink that.
