Bush was itching to attack Iraq to avenge his father before 9/11. Because Saddam supposedly tried to assassinate Bush Sr. The 9/11 attack gave Bush a good excuse. Government agencies, who have their own interests (to boost career, salary, bonus & pension), stepped in to lobby for bigger budget for their departments (Pentagon, CIA, FBI, subcontractors, etc) first via false intelligence and assessment, then via war, then via nation building.
PressTV has less credibility than BBC, especially when PressTV talks about Israel. PressTV is an Iranian government outlet.
