    Let's review this quote carefully, boys and girls.

    "Rumsfeld and Cheney and the president made a big mistake in justifying going into the war in Iraq. They put the emphasis on weapons of mass destruction," Ford said. "And now, I've never publicly said I thought they made a mistake, but I felt very strongly it was an error in how they should justify what they were going to do."

    Am I the only one who looks at the words 'justifying,' 'emphasis,' and 'error in how they should justify,' and comes away with the notion that Ford isn't being critical of the actual war, but in what the big wigs were telling the American people about why we are there?

    Nobody from the drive-by media (say what you want about Limbaugh, but he has us nailed on this term) has mentioned that.

    Noted that, as well, and don't disagree with you.
