War Rationale: Version 10.0

War Rationale: Version 10.0 In the year since the invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration has repeatedly shifted its justification for going to war and constantly changed its story on intelligence, the United Nations, reconstruction, political transition and the cost to the American taxpayer. We all know (almost) everything about it by now, but this account is hilarious.

Each of those "versions" should go to a press release or news story backing the claim. Then it would be smart AND funny.

and admirable if one could research all of them from google caches and, before completion, not blow their brains out from the effort.

it'd be too easy--and every single one of those has been all over the evening news at one time or another. Seeing them all together at once points out who deeply and troublingly absurd it all is (and if only so many lives weren't lost or ruined, and so much money wasted...)

President Bush passes through the ''side boys'' after successfully trapping aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln on an S-3B Viking known as ''Navy 1''. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate Third Class Tyler J. Clements. Inspiration by Teletubbies

But you got to admit it has provided some arresting images.

This guy either doesn't understand or is very liberally using version numbering. Each of those major versions are a separate topic, and they were discussed concurrently from the beginning. So really a better analogy would be separate CVS branches in one program, with versions of their own... oh, never mind :P
