So Why Did You Attack Iraq, Mr. President?

OK, Mr. President, I listened to you tonight...

You said:

"To complete the mission, we will prevent Al Qaeda and other foreign terrorists from turning Iraq into what Afghanistan was under the Taliban – a safe haven from which they could launch attacks on America and our friends."
So, in other words, Iraq wasn't a haven for terrorists before we turned it into one.

Given that and the big three findings of the 9/11 Commission – no weapons of mass destruction, no links to Al Qaeda and no connection to the attacks of September 11 – just why did we invade Iraq?
