ABSTRACT
With 760 dead in Iraq, over 3,000 maimed for, home folks continue to argue why the Americans are in Iraq and how to get out. Now everyone knows what was not the cause. Even U.S. President George W. Bush acknowledges that former Iraqi President Saddam Hussain had nothing to do with 9/11. Listing the 45 countries where Al-Qaeda was operating on September 11, the U.S. State Department did not list Iraq. Three weeks before the invasion, Bush stated "A new regime in Iraq would serve as a dramatic and inspiring example for freedom for other nations in the region."
