It was all about WMD!!!!!

Mike Rosen attempts to remind the democrats that WMD were never the sole reason for going into Iraq:

But how about WMD as the sole justification? Sen. Barbara Boxer trotted out that canard in her shrill interrogation of Rice during the confirmation hearings for secretary of state. 'Well,' she huffed, 'you should read what we voted on when we voted to support the war, which I did not, but most of my colleagues did. It was WMD period. That was the reason and the causation for that, you know, particular vote.' 'WMD period'? Oh, really? Perhaps Boxer should reread the text of the Joint Congressional Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq, passed by the House and Senate in October 2002. Either she failed to do so then or she's forgotten. (Could she be 'lying'?) Preceding the 'resolved' part, there were 23 separate 'whereases,' citing the justifications for war. Only nine of them made specific reference to WMD.
He then give some of the specific reasons, things like promoting democracy and human rights.
