 Bush claims US attacked Iraq over UN "Oil for Food" program

President Bush conceded yesterday in the clearest terms yet that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction. The Doofus-In-Chief now claims the real reason the US went to war was because Saddam was abusing a U.N. oil-for-food program.

Ridiculing the Bush administration's evolving rationale for war, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry shot back: "You don't make up or find reasons to go to war after the fact."

"The Duelfer report showed that Saddam was systematically gaming the system, using the U.N. oil-for-food program to try to influence countries and companies in an effort to undermine sanctions," Bush said. "He was doing so with the intent of restarting his weapons program once the world looked away."

Duelfer's report, which was presented Wednesday to senators and the public, found no formal plan by Saddam to resume WMD production.

This week marks the first time that the Bush administration has listed abuses in the oil-for-fuel program as an Iraq war rationale.
