Our Mission in Iraq

I heard GW Bush in a speech describe our mission in Iraq as being to defeat the terrorists there.

Given that these terrorists were not terrorists in Iraq (i.e. they were not committing acts of terror in Iraq) until after we invaded, did we create our reason for going into Iraq when we went into Iraq in the first place? Is the war in Iraq a self-justifying war? Goodness -- Eisenhower must be spinning in his grave right about now.

When it comes to this administration, I am always reminded of an admonition they have appearantly never heard: "don't piss in the wind and tell me it's raining".
