The post wasn't demonstrating the truth or lies of the statements. Rather the post demonstrated what leading democrats said at the time.

The post also didn't attempt to verify the veracity of what they were saying. Instead, like the useful idiots occupying the democrap party, you breathlessly repeated them.

Since you're a lover of Democrap quotes, how about adding this to your list of "honest" Democraps:

"The Duelfer report is yet another example that there really are two Americas," said Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif. "There's the one that exists in the Bush fantasy world, and then there's the real America. In the Bush fantasy world, they still claim that Iraq was an imminent threat with weapons of mass destruction."

In 2002, Bush described the Iraq threat saying, "It possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons."

He also said, "We've also discovered through intelligence that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas."

And, "Iraq possesses ballistic missiles with a likely range of hundreds of miles — far enough to strike Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey and other nations — in a region where more than 135,000 American civilians and service members live and work."

I also notice there's no quotes from the Duelfer report:

In his report, Duelfer concluded that Saddam's Iraq had no stockpiles of the banned weapons.

"It appears that he did not vigorously pursue those programs after the inspectors left," a U.S. official said on condition of anonymity, ahead of the report's Wednesday afternoon release by the CIA.

U.S. officials also said the report shows Saddam was much farther away from a nuclear weapons program in 2003 than he was between 1991 and 1993; there is no evidence that Iraq and Al Qaeda exchanged weapons; and there is no evidence that Al Qaeda and Iraq shared information, technology or personnel in developing weapons.

Lastly, why not quote directly from your he-ro Bush, himself?

President George W. Bush: "The main reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction. It turns out he didn't."

Perhaps the Ol' in your screen name implies you're too f'ing stupid to understand the context of the original article because you're way f'ing off base. Now go back to being an asshole.

I'm not the one uncritically quoting the lies of Democraps and left-wing propaganda organs like PBS. Only useful idiots or just plain ol' idiots, like yourself, do that.

I didn’t finish reading your post as I see you’re back to being an asshole as you misrepresent and try to put words in my mouth. I can only hope you have a shorter life for being such an ass. Farewell, asshole.
