On the anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War, we should all remember the more than 500 families of American soldiers who have lost a loved one.
We also should not forget that the Bush administration rushed us into this conflict without an exit strategy or the help of the international community.
We should not forget that the Bush administration told the world that Saddam had stockpiles of chemical weapons, nerve agents, mobile weapons of mass destruction labs and the delivery systems to strike our allies.
We should not forget that this administration told us there was an imminent threat to American lives.
We should not forget that al Qaida, not Saddam, was behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
As Americans, we need to hold President Bush accountable for misinformation and find out with certainty if this administration deliberately misled us.
