Bush administration has used 27 rationales for war in Iraq, study says: "If it seems that there have been quite a few rationales for going to war in Iraq, that's because there have been quite a few - 27, in fact, all floated between Sept. 12, 2001, and Oct. 11, 2002, according to a new study from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. All but four of the rationales originated with the administration of President George W. Bush.

The study also finds that the Bush administration switched its focus from Osama bin Laden to Saddam Hussein early on - only five months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States."


The full study is available here. I haven't had time to wade through it yet, but I'm hoping a good extract will be available soon.
