But if the case for war was so complete and compelling, why was there a need for this bullshit propaganda story?
Why does everything that come up negative, have to have been a lie from a propaganda campain? Sheesh, this thinking is so idiotic. A few other possibilities, the machine was taken out of service and removed way before the war, or perhaps it was an Iraqi urban legend based on something else, perhaps the fact that the regime was cruel and inhumane. OR, perhaps the Bush Administration went back in time to 1996 and planted the story so that British author could write about it... hmmmm. Paging Mr. Occam...

(Cogito ergo moon.)
This is simple. If somebody peddles a story as fact without evidence to back it up, that is propaganda. Sure, there are a thousand different conceivable scenarios that would explain why there is no evidence. But that is true of virtually any assertion. I could claim that Bush did indeed plant the shredder; what would you do? Demand proof of course. As you should.

I second Paradox's comments, and encourage you to spend some time here: http://www.9neesan.com/massgraves/
See if some of the 54 pages of mass graves strike a cord with you. But I guess if there wasn't a shredder, it was all for nought. < /major sarcasm>
