Did Liberals lie about weapons of mass destruction?
Canada Free Press ^ | November 5, 2006 | John Lillpop

Posted on 11/05/2006 7:57:07 AM PST by elhombrelibre

As the war in Iraq becomes increasingly unpopular with Americans, Democrats in collusion with the liberal mainstream media, continue to politicize the war by blatantly distorting the facts.

For example, a popular refrain is that President Bush lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in order to implement a grand strategy fashioned by neo-conservatives well before Bush actually took office. Said strategy was supposedly aimed at using military force to install democratic regimes friendly to the U.S. throughout the Middle East.

The real outrage is that the MSM has allowed the Democrats to get away with this, just as it now allows fellow MSM member the NYT to switch positions with its recent Website/WMD story. Now, the NYT, without batting an eye or blushing, says the Bush Administration has exposed highly dangerous information about the Iraqi WMD program and failed to protect highly classified information. Of course, the paper of Herbert Matthews, their reporter who helped pave the way for Castro by lying about his commitment to communism, and the paper of Walter Duranty, the reporter who lied about Stalin's mass murder of Ukrainians, must consider their recent whoppers on WMD small potatoes.

This is a time of war, yet the Democrats have gotten a pass on the fact that they voted for that war, they sighted the same intelligence reports as the president to justify their votes, they supported the war until it became difficult, and now they seek a collective partisan advantage by feigning collective amnesia. Obviously, the MSM has been and is their willing ally in massive dodging of their own actions, demagogic attacks, and rewriting of history.

As we get ready to vote, keep in mind that these are the Democrats who seek to take the legislative branch of government.

The article is worth saving because it lists all of the statements Democrats made about Iraq prior to the war. Future historians, since present day media is nearly all indifferent, will marvel at how well the Democrats managed to slip their previous positions, dodge responsibility, re-write history, and undermine a president and his military during a war. The "loyal" opposition in our country inspires the enemy in Iraq into believing that their victory is at hand and their fight is a just one. Shame on the MSM and the Democrats.

Unfortunately most people don't spend alot of time seeking out news. Because of that, a blatantly partisan MSM which for some weird reason appears to hate the hand that has fed it, is quite capable of leading said sheep anywhere they want them.

I agree, and I don't know that the MSM has ever done so much to aid and abet the Liberals. The way they've rewritten history would make Stalin proud.

Oh, if only this were true. We would be so much better off today. It should have happened during the 8 Clinton years, but he was too busy announcing a "peace dividend" and gutting the US military. Incidentally, what do the democrats find so repulsive about this strategy? Should we have waited until Sadam actually was producing nukes and launching them at Israel while selling them to terrorists before we interceded?

Liberals (Democrats) lie about anything and everything that doesn't facilitate their control of your life. They are Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Genghis Kahn, Nero, Saddam, and any other crazy Muslim you can think of, all rolled into one. They will steal your money, your integrity, your future, and your life if you let them. Putting them in control of ANY part of this government is to succumb to evil....

A very long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the media did a pretty good job at reporting on politicians and government. They reported abuses on both sides, they reported on illegal activities on both sides, they reported stories that politicians of both sides wanted kept hidden.

Although not perfect, it was much better than today. We the peeples need a media that keeps the government and politicians feet to the fire, no matter the political party.

That is no longer the case.

Now we have a media that is overtly and openly supporting one party over another. They report indiscretions of one party (Republicans) and ignore these same indiscretions from the other party (Democrats). If something is illegal, immoral or un-ethical because a Republican did it, the same should be said of a Democrat. To the media, this is no longer true.

The media is no longer the safety valve that we the peeples need to keep politicians and government in check, at least as much as possible. Now, if you are a liberal politician, you can do pretty much any illegal or un-ethical activity as they know the media will close their eyes. Just look at William Jefferson of Lousiana. Found with $90,000 in his freezer, the media just ignores it.

Imagine if this was a Republican.

How about Harry Reid and the numerous land deals he has done over 20 years, using his powerful influence to get zoning changes, to earn millions on devious deals. The media just ignores it.

Imagine if this was a Republican.

If something is illegal, un-ethical, immoral because a Republican did it, then this same illegal, un-ehtical, immoral thing is wrong if a Democrat did it. This is no longer true to the main stream media.

What the media is also saying, although not directly, is that the Democrat party is not ethical, they do engage in illegal activities, they are immoral. They just do not report on these things when it comes to Democrats because it is expected of them. But, heaven forbid a Republican does something like this!! Then they will destroy them in the name of keeping government and politicians honest.

Those in the media have become exactly what they were fighting against in the 60's and 70's: They have become the pawns of one party. They have become part of big government, not a safety valve against big government. They collaborate and work with the Democratic party against the Republican party, rather than keeping all politicians 'honest'. They have become exactly the thing they were fighting against: Part of the big business/big government complex.

They have become an intregal part of the thing they hated most: A tool of big government.

this is funny at the end:

John Lillpop is a recovering liberal, "clean and sober" since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are considered reasonable!.

Perhaps an ongoing research program in Iraq directed toward developing a nuclear bomb is not considered WMD in the Democratic Party and MSM circles?

Mia T. had a good article in her threads about how Saddam was just a year away from getting the bomb (re: confiscated Iraqi documents posted on recently removed website containing VERY sensitive nuclear bomb production secrets). He needed just one thing - yellowcake.

DUmocrats like Kerry would "never lie to get us into war"....nope, they are too spineless for war. They'd follow the Carter example giving lip service to threats or Clinton's example of paying the terrorists to "leave us alone". In effect, with the DUmocrats in control we bought and paid for 9-11.

They lie to get us to a false peace and paint targets on all our backs. Even after 3,000 people were killed, they still won't defend us. DUmocrats are nothing more than the terrorists, with lawyers instead of IEDs.

Thanks for the ping RD. :-)

Not only were these statements made, but as I recall, the anti-war protests running up to the war included repetitive warnings that we would see tens of thousands of body bags because our soldiers would be facing Saddam's bio-chem arsenal. ( I recall the typical figure was 50K dead American soldiers used) To top that off, the Libs and the media were also voicing warnings that our troops did not have enough bio-chem suits, up to date filters on their masks, etc. Remember that?

Why were all these gloom and doom warnings made IF the Libs did not believe there were WMD??? Perhaps the Libs and the MSM have convenient amnesia, but the rest of us don't.

I've thought for a long time that much of this discussion was wrong because Saddam's wealth would have allowed him to buy a nuke. So with Libya and North Korea pushing towards the goal of nukes, Saddam didn't have to produce a nuke to get one. Libya as we all know gave up its pursuit, but North Korea would no doubt sold him one for the right price. As long as he wanted one, had the money to buy one, and had a producer willing to sell him one, he was likely to end up with one.

You make a good point. So, he was covered on all bases, with the knowledge to make nuclear weapons and the money to get them.
