Teddy Kennedy in the Washington Post today
"There was no imminent threat. Hussein had no nuclear weapons, no arsenals of chemical or biological weapons, no connection to Sept. 11 and no plausible link to al Qaeda. We never should have gone to war for ideological reasons driven by politics and based on manipulated intelligence. . . .

Vast resources have been spent on the war that should have been spent on priorities at home. Our forces are stretched thin. Precious lives have been lost. The war has made America more hated in the world and made the war on terrorism harder to win. . .

President Bush violated the trust that must exist between government and the people."

Read the whole thing, if you wish.

TK and fellow far-Lefties remind me of the blind men and the elephant. If they were not blind, they would be able to "see" the implications of the following recent quote:
". . . the march of resistance will continue until the Islamic flag is raised, not only over the minarets of Jerusalem, but over the whole universe," Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said.
TK: There is a threat, it is imminent, there may be nukes involved, there are arsenals, there are connections, interconnections and links. More precious lives will likely be lost. And p.s., who cares if we are hated? I care mostly about me and my loved ones not getting dead, thank you very much. -Yael
