    I don't understand why Senators Graham an McCain were not troubled by the ENTIRE Bush crew lying to the American people for eight years about the reason for spending a decade in Iraq, killing thousands of our military, spending billions of taxpayer dollars and blaming their lies on "faulty intelligence". Where were they then?
