Lefties Got It Wrong On The War

As they have on so many other things, America's lefties got the war wrong. However, facts have never stood in their way before.

Via Instapundit (see blogroll at left) comes a link to this Investor's Business Daily article about some of the many documents captured in Iraq that are only now beginning to see the light of day. Combine the information in these documents with the Duelfer Report and the recently released tapes of Saddam talking about weapons of mass destruction, and you begin to wonder how anyone can challenge the necessity of that war with a straight face.

Among the enduring myths of those who oppose the war is that Saddam, though murderous when it came to his own people, had no weapons of mass destruction and no terrorist designs outside his own country. Both claims now lie in tatters...

Even as the media studiously avoid these new documents — just as they avoided 500 hours of Saddam's personal tapes showing his scheming on WMD — it's clear the U.S. did the right thing in invading Iraq and taking out a formative terrorist threat.
