While Iraq is now called a main front in the war on terror, former President Bill Clinton said yesterday said he never really saw it as such.
"I never thought [Iraq] had much to do with the war on terror, except that we were looking to see if there were biological and chemical agents there," he told CNN's "Situation Room."
And though he said it's too late now, Clinton said he thought the UN weapons inspectors should have been allowed to complete their job: "The UN inspections were well-advised. But it was clearly not going to have anything to do with Al Qaeda."
The Bush administration, in particular Vice President Cheney, has linked deposed dictator Saddam Hussein to Osama Bin Laden's Al Qaeda network.
As for his wife, the former President insisted that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) is not a candidate for President - even though sources have told the Daily News he will be her chief strategist if and when she does run.
"She's not a candidate," Bill Clinton said, "and I don't know that she will be ... I am convinced in my own mind she hasn't decided on that. I believe I would know if she had."
Bill has "other interests"...
...'cause you know that there are no secrets between him and the missus.
#$@#$, I wonder if now, the Bush family will declar war on this treasonist back stabber?
What the heck would Clinton know about fighting a War on Terror? His idea of fighting a war was jawing on the phone with Arafat while Monica was 'jawing' him!!!!
So what were those bombs in December of 1998 for then?
Naw, he is a family friend.
I keep going back and forth. Today, yes, he is worse than Carter.
Clinton opens mouth - Lie comes out!
This from the guy who never tied sex to oral stimulation.
Even better to be able to lie at will, knowing that nobody in the media will question anything.
It is obvious that Clinton never thought too much about terrorism and Iraq at all....considering what he let Bin Ladin get away with...and the fact the Saddam was financing the terrorists in Israel...and the Oil-for-food Scandal was happening under his nose...
What then does he use for the reason the Hillary voted for the war in Iraq? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
"I never thought [Iraq] had much to do with the war on terror,
Terror fight ? What terror fight ? There was no terror fight until GW took Office !
And why did he inject the military deployed to the Gulf with the experimental Antrax vaccine starting back in 1997?
What was that Al Shifa business all about?
Well that's funny. It's the Clinton administration that signed the Iraqi Liberation Act in 1998 which called for regime change. Clinton's rhetoric at the time sounded EXACTLY like Bush's rhetoric and Clinton actually said that Iraq threatened the region "and all of us".
As well, Clinton's Justice Department indictment of OBL stated that OBL had reached an agreement with the country of Iraq. In exchange for weapons development, AQ would not attack Iraq.
"I believe I would know if she had."
How could he? Bubba and the Heinous Harridan don't even share the same address!
