Is it really about democracy in Iraq?

Those of you familiar with the neocon PNAC will know this letter. Those of you who aren’t, here’s a classic document which verifies that the Iraq invasion and occupation has NOTHING to do with 9/11 or (in terms of the last 48 hours) bringing democracy to the Iraqi people.

It’s all about WMD and oil, but we know this. Thought you’d like to hear it in the neocons’ own words. Note the signatures and note the number of times “democracy”, “liberating”, “voting”, “liberty”, “elections”, and “freedom” is mentioned in the memo (hint: zero times).

Letter to President Clinton, January 26, 1998
