Bush claimed that former ruler Saddam Hussein was stockpiling “weapons of mass destruction” and that was used as the sounding board to begin sending troops to the Middle East.
The American public rallied around this and supported the decision by Bush. Years later it found that there were no massive stockpiles of weapons but by then it was too late. Watch the Matt Damon film “Green Zone”, it’ll give it to you in a nutshell.
Brees simply meant that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is stockpiling his own “weapons of mass destruction” against the Saints in the form of so called evidence.
While some 200 pages was recently released, many are still wanting more concrete evidence that specifically ties the players to the “bounty” program. Sorry, but a picture of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” on a Power Point isn’t enough.
Much like Bush, Goodell is wanting the public and players included to take his word for it and just accept what he is saying as the Alpha and Omega. That is all that Brees meant by his comment, no more and no less.
