Wolfowitz: Alleged Iraqi weapons a "bureaucratic" point
Reuters reports excerpts from an interview Wolfie recently gave to Vanity Fair. In it, Wolfowitz stated that Iraq's supposed WMDs were stressed for "bureaucratic" reasons and that they were only one reason the Bush administration decided to attack Iraq.
"For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction, because it was the one reason everyone could agree on," Wolfowitz was quoted as saying...

Wolfowitz said another reason for the invasion had been "almost unnoticed but huge" -- namely that the ousting of Saddam would allow the United States to remove its troops from Saudi Arabia, where their presence had long been a major al Qaeda grievance.
There was no indication as to where these US soldiers would be relocated - completely out of the Middle East? into Iraq? Was the war just a big real estate scam? But Wolfowitz's crystal ball was broken on one point - like it was for his prediction that the Iraqis would rise up and greet American soldiers as liberators:
"Just lifting that burden from the Saudis is itself going to open the door" to a more peaceful Middle East, Wolfowitz was quoted as saying.

The magazine said he made the remarks days before suicide bombings, attributed to al Qaeda, against Western targets in Riyadh and Casablanca two weeks ago that killed 75 people.
Where do they find these people? The Bush administration isn't doing damage control - it's easing into the big lie.
