There's a difference between a legal justification and an actual justification, just as there's a difference between legal and right. The fact that finding and securing WMD, or in fact even weapons of smaller bits of destruction, was not a real part of the invasion plan makes it seem that all the "justification" was actually "pretext."

But even better than the mom running her engine for 20 minutes on a beautiful afternoon waiting to pick up her kid was a dad at baseball practice last night. One kid on the team, two kids on the playground and one dad in the SUV with the engine running. Sure, it was getting chilly. I went back to the car to get a jacket. But I didn't get in and run the heat.
