Po-ta-toes, Po-tah-tohs 

Yahoo! News - U.S. Weapons Hunt Shifts Focus to 'Intent' in Iraq:
The U.S. search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq will continue despite the failure so far to find them but the mission will also investigate whether Saddam Hussein intended to develop such weapons, the chief U.S. arms hunter said on Tuesday.
Later in the article...
The new direction of trying to determine whether the former Iraqi president was actively pursuing the development of banned arms reflects the Bush administration's evolving public rationale for the war on Iraq.

Initially, the administration said an invasion was necessary to find and destroy weapons of mass destruction that Iraq possessed and was prepared to use. With none uncovered, the White House now says the war, in which more than 500 U.S. troops and thousands of Iraqis have died, was justified by Saddam's alleged intent to build and use such weaponry.
The ever evolving rationale for a done-deed? That is not rationale. It is rationalization. See for yourselves: rationale, rationalization.
