Why Did We Go to War With Iraq?

The taped bit with Colbert and Helen Thomas went on a bit long, but it served to highlight the fundamental question for which we still have no answer - why did we go to war with Iraq?

The other day when when Kristol was on Colbert, he muttered something about not tolerating dictators who kill their own people. I certainly don't like such people, and there are plenty of them in the world, but notice that human rights concerns weren't actually a part of Bill Kristol's desire to go war in Iraq back in the PNAC day. Not a single mention.
