I thought the Gore information was interesting too. So I did a search and found the text of Al Gore's "blatant disregard" speech from September 29, 1992 here:
A couple other quotes from that speech:
"The Reagan/Bush Administration was also prepared to overlook the fact that the terrorist who masterminded the attack on the Achille Lauro and the savage murder of American Leon Klinghoffer fled with Iraqi assistance. Nor did it matter that the team of terrorists who set out to blow up the Rome airport came from Baghdad with suitcase bombs."
"There might have been a moment's pause for reflection when Iraqi aircraft intentionally attacked the USS Stark in May 1987, killing 37 sailors -- but the Administration smoothed it over very fast."
thanks for the link faq, very interesting, I guess to be a liberal the first requirement is to be an utter and total hypocrite.
