No, but there were lies about Hussein nonetheless. And since there were, it is difficult to know what to believe as each and every story has a likely agenda behind it. After all, he was a serious threat to dollar hegemony and had to be eliminated. The most pernicious one was his "gassing of the Kurds". That gets dragged out in almost ever op-ed piece ever crafted. It ranks above the tale about all the material that many Americans were led to believe was merely "buried in the desert".
The truth was that the gas that killed the Kurds was Russian gas, not American made like what Saddam had been equipped with. The Iranis, clients of the Russians, released the gas, which wasn't meant for the Kurds, but rather the Iraqis...the wind changed.
But you won't find that story. It has been expunged. I have a copy of an American State Department White Paper that covers the incident however and it goes into greater detail.
It also underscores the fact that gas, chemical and biological weapons are not in the class of WMDs, but are only area deprivation weapons although the Amerisheeple© were fed another story all together.
Are you saying that all the stories about Saddam torturing people were lies?
That being said, the damage to our country getting involved in the internal affairs of other countries has consequences that are far more negative than positive. It has been well documented that central banks and the military/industrial complex are the real beneficiaries of these foreign adventures. Our freedoms here have been severely restricted over fears of terrorism. These fears are mostly unfounded when, for example, elderly native born people are treated just like terrorists when going through airport security. That is just one example that shows these policies are more about controlling us than identifying bad people.

--------For the people that think the Ron Paul Revolution is dead and that his campaign is over:
Ron Paul is the only intelligent choice. Ron Paul does not have a snow ball chance in hell at the presidency. He is not the most prolific speaker and he does not promise everything to everyone. He appeals to the thinking minority. Unfortunately, the other 90 % of the voting public is too ignorant to comprehend the problems ahead. So, instead of sending additional funds to Dr. Paul, find a more useful endeavor with more possibilities of positive results. Personally, I have contributed several hundred dollars to his campaign in the early stages; now it is an exercise in futility. Even Dr. Paul admits he cannot win. Throwing good money after bad is not exactly the action of an intelligent person .
If you think the primary balloting process has been unmanipulated.....
I had a woman call my office yesterday. It was a sales call. She didn't even get half way and we were talking about Paul and how she didn't think the primary in her state was legitimate saying. "Everyone I talked to was voting for Ron Paul."
