Reader's view: Bush officials are revising Iraq war's history

The accused Boston Marathon bomber is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. Glad that is finally cleared up. For so long we were told those weapons were in Iraq.

The accused Boston Marathon bomber is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. Glad that is finally cleared up. For so long we were told those weapons were in Iraq.

War pretty much destroyed that country and killed thousands, not to mention increased our national debt by trillions. President George W. Bush declared the war over while on an aircraft carrier as his attention waned.

All those officials from the last administration seem to be busy now revising history. Vice President Dick Cheney had an apparent change of heart but not of mind. Secretary of State and retired four-star general Colin Powell is the old soldier who never dies; he gets brought out on the Fourth of July.

Bush just opened his presidential library in Texas. That's a good place for it and the part-time rancher, part-time mountain biker.
