Shock and Yawn: O'Neill Charges that Bush Admin. Planned Iraq War Long Before 9/11

If the revelations of the inner workings of the Bush Administration featured in an upcoming '60 Minutes' segment are at all surprising, it's only because of their source: Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill. Among his claims: cabinet meetings that resembled "a blind man in a roomful of deaf people," and that the administration began plotting Hussein's overthrow not after September 11, 2001, but within days of the Inaguration.

All that aside, I am starting to wonder if it isn't possible to separate the deceit that went into selling this war from the (possibly) sound reasons for undertaking it? More on that later...
