Jules Crittenden looks at the Robert Gates confirmation hearings, and writes:

As political matters go, I was more interested to hear a former CIA director still thinks we had to invade Iraq in 2003. That was also a relevant strategic issue, after all. The sanctions regime was falling apart and Saddam with a nuke would have become an even bigger problem than Saddam without a nuke. Every major intelligence agency in the world believed he had nukes, as did Gates himself. Let’s hope this, unchallenged yesterday, will finally shut up the revisionist “Bush Lied” Left, though I’m not holding my breath on that.

Didn’t the New York Times resolve this issue recently?
