Why’s he blasting Bush’s father when he and Clinton took no military action against terrorists themselves? Clinton PARDONED more terrorists than he ever got rid of, what room does Gore, one of the anti-Iraq buffoons, have to talk about this?

You know, this is the kind of story that just makes me smile.

Good for Rush.

As President Truman used to say, “the only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.”

I do not recall this speech by then VP Gore, but I sure am tickled to hear it today.

My word, what a putz.

These people were big liars then, just as they're big liars now.

Why on Earth should I believe anything they're saying now when I knew they were lying then?

As you watch this speech, replay the Gore speech from 2004,
“He betrayed this country. He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place.”

P.S. If I were a Democrat I would shut down the internet archives now. Using their own words against them would be illegal.
Critical thinking American Citizens would hold them accountable.

I listened to Rush play this today. It was hysterical.

I especially liked the part where Gore was talking about all the terrorists in Iraq, and all the terrorism they were causing in the world. Also how he said that Bush Sr. just thought that talk and negotiations would take care of Saddam seeking WOMD.

Bubba , went on record to the US stating (on TV) that he did not know why Iraq was such a big deal. He thought it was something between Bush senior and Iraq.

Bubba made it sound like the Iraq issues were a thing of the first Bush administration not something his administration needed to watch.

RUSH played clips of this during the 1st hour today.

The whole thing is 10min, but there are some 10-20s quotes sprinkled through that are so un-freaking-real in their hypocrisy, you can’t help but laugh out loud at the absurdity.

Basically it goes...

Terrorism, terrorism, terrorism...
Saddam, Saddam...
Continues to attack, again and again but is ignored
Ignores everything we say, but we won’t hold them accountable...
WMD, chemical weapons, attacks, killing, despot...
Cannot be allowed to continue, we’re protecting them even though they support terrorism and are pursuing nuke technology...
Bush won’t do anything, Bush is weak and doesn’t care
Terrorism, WMD, continued attacks...
Can’t be friends with such a monster, gassing Kurds, brutally murdering... we can NEVER forget...
You’d think Bush would do something about it...
Letting them get away with it makes them more dangerous...
I myself demanded tough action on the senate floor but Bush ignored it.
Bush had plenty of evidence that Iraq continued to cooperate with terrorists, was meddling in Lebanon, and working hard at chemical and biological weapons and new missiles, and that Iraq was clandestinely working on acquiring nuclear technology through the black market....
Despite this alarming info from the CIA, Defense Department, the Energy Department, the Commerce Department, the Justice Department, the state Department, other agencies... Bush still was trying to give Saddam things to make him change.
Why should Sadddam be concerned with any threat of action, while Bush is always eager to look the other way?

Who controlled the CIA from Jan 1993 - Jan 2001?

Who downsized the military and civilian intelligence?

Who relied on electronic survillance from the air rather than having our agents working on the ground gathering intelligence.

Even CIA agents were scarce. It was cheaper to allow third nationals collect intelligence for the United States. We outsourced our whole intelligence gathering apparatus to NIC!

Why didn’t the Clinton Administration force Saddam to except UN inspectors back into Iraq to access the damage after Desert Fox in 1998?

When the Senate Intelligence Report stated we did not have any credible evidence concerning al Queda and Saddam connection; they meant we didn’t have NO intelligence on al Queda or Saddam’s Regime for 8 years before 911 happen.

Clinton Administration wanted to spend the the peace dividend after the Soviet Union collasped.

I wish Gore would run so that we could see this thrown in his face on a regular basis.

Aside from his mindboggling hypocrisy, another thought that comes to mind is that every time I listen to Al Gore, I feel like I’m being scolded.

Because the main purpose of Desert Fox was to take attention away from the House’s Articles of Impeachment. The schmuck failed to do the right thing (resign, since Monicagate was such a distraction and let the mighty and bellicose Gore handle Saddam). (Chuckle).

It would be amusing if not so appalling and tragic, that Albore and his fellow ‘RATs then had 8 YEARS in office to follow up on the Goreacle’s speech, yet failed so abysmally to properly prepare our nation, straighten out the Iraq mess, etc. This speech should be thrown in the faces of all the lying Demagogues now, but of course the MSM and the ‘RATs don’t care about honesty, consistency or competence when people like the Goreacle are involved.

Clinton should of come out and said he had the affair.
The Liberals would love him even more for being so honest.

OBL did mention Clinton’s affair in one his speeches.

Should of mention Clinton’s Bay of Camel.

Clinton wanted to overthrow Saddam back in 1995 with the CIA and Kurdish joint venture.

It’s in the 2004 Senate Intelligence Report.

Los Angeles Times has a interesting article when Clinton got cold feet at the last minute and left the Kurds high and dry.

Ibril Massacre happen.

People need a trip down memory lane.

I remember during the Clinton’s Administration how they hammered away how dangerous Saddam was.

I remember Cohen on a Sunday talk show...with a five pounds of Sugar saying 5 lbs anthrax would take out Washington DC.

Cohen was worried about Saddam giving terrorist BW.

Now we really went into Iraq to really overthrow Saddam and the news has a memory black hole.

I’m getting tired of BS!

Clinton screwed up with Iraq by not being forceful enough. We’re paying for it now through our boys getting killed.

We had a chance to overthrow Saddam back in 1995 but Clinton got cold feet. He didn’t want to supply the NIC with weapons to take out Saddam.

Read the report. This was never reported in the drive by media.

It’s all about politics and who gets on top.

Maybe it was the Clinton Administration started this Mantra “Saddam had WMD.” Based on nothing because the Administration screwed up with their intelligence gathering.

We had a faulty intelligence machine back during the Clinton years because they thought there was a a al Queda/Sudan/Iraq connection.

Why the 1998 indictment showing this?

Why did Clinton lobbed bombs at the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in the Sudan in 1998? His team thought the place was making VX nerve gas in a joint venture with al Queda, Sudan and Iraq.

http://www.slate.com/id/2098009

http://www.slate.com/id/2098102/

He just hit the wrong place. Clinton wanted to lob bombs at a Tannery in 1999 but changed his mind when he found out the place was filled with workers.

http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=1694242001

It was okay for Clinton Administration to say there was a connection and Saddam had WMD but not for the Bush Administration.

It’s very frustrating. I like to know who really screwed things up! Because I know the intelligence gathered by Bush Sr was passed to the Clinton Administration and then passed to Bush Administration.

If we had poor input during the Clinton Administration because we crippled our intelligence gathering ability...ie no arabic linguist...we are going to war with poor information.

Now we’re playing political football with it and kicking Bush in the balls for doing something about Saddam.

It doesn’t make sense.

Rush had the audio.
Gore blamed Bush Sr. for ignoring Saddam especially when Saddam gassed the Kurds many times during the 1980’s.

In other words Gore is trying to say we supplied Saddam with chemical weapons.

Blame America First.

When the Iraq-Iran War broke out all the Sunni Middle Easterners supported Saddam. They were afraid of the Iranian Revolution would spread through out the Middle East.

Even the Soviet Union were afraid of the Iranian Revolution. Iranians were next door to Kazakh, Turkmen, Tadzhik S.S.R and the Soviets didn’t want any problems with their satellites going “Fundamental” on them. The Soviets put their support behind Saddam by selling conventional and unconventional weapons to the Regime.

So did the United States and other Western powers. We sold chemical and biological technology...not weapons.

Let’s put “Who sold Saddam the Chemical Weapons” to a rest.

The world community sold Saddam chemical and biological technology which was perfectly legal. Most third world countries do use pesticides or vaccinate their livestock for anthrax.

Most countries don’t commit mass murder.

When the United States and other countries found out Saddam was using chemical weapons we decided to restrict the export of certain chemicals so they wouldn’t be weaponized.

The UN condemn the gas attacks but they didn’t put any sanctions against Iraq at the time.
SO/RES/0620 (1988)
26 August 1988
http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/un/res0620.htm

The Senate followed suit but developed their own sanctions.
Prevention of Genocide Act of 1988

http://members.aol.com/apollo711/war/genocide-act.html

But smuggling the dual use chemicals were still going on. Thiodglycol is used in the textile industry.

This is Saddam’s supplier Frans Van Anraat AKA Faris Mansoor Rashid. US Customs were on his tail for since 1988.
http://www.radionetherlands.nl/currentaffairs/anr070404mc

Smuggling operation
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/iraq/article400377.ece

The chemical thiodiglycol
http://cbwinfo.com/General/Proliferation/Thiodiglycol.html

Another thing should the Dutch government should be responsible for Frans illegal activity?
Are they apart of the Kurdish Genocide?
How about all the ports that allowed the smuggled to go through.
Should Belgium and Jordanian governments be responsible for the Kurdish Genocide because they allowed the smugglers to used their ports to smuggled the illicit goods?

And what about all the Iraqi scientist who weapon the chemicals?
Where did they get their education from?
Not in Iraq...they all went to Europe, the United States, the Soviet Union or Warsaw Pact Countries.

Should we charge all university professors who taught advance chemistry to Iraqi Scientist for being Genocide enablers?

The liberals blame the Reagan Administration for gassing the Kurds. Saddam used our helicopters.
http://www.carlisle.army.mil/usawc/Parameters/03summer/borer.htm

And we still armed Saddam after 1988.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/articles/03/02/08_gassing.html

Others claimed Saddam used Soviet MIGS to drop chemical bombs.
http://www.crimesofwar.org/thebook/poisonous-weapons.html

“Gore served in the United States House of Representatives (1977–85) and the United States Senate (1985–93) representing Tennessee.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Gore

I wonder if Al Gore objected to any of the 1988 US Senate Sanctions?

US Senate Riegle Report
United States Department of Commerce giving Saddam biological technologies.

http://www.iraqwatch.org/perspectives/Sussexreport.htm

Tennessee is a big agriculture state. I wonder if they gave Saddam any biological technology samples for Veterinary Medicine research?

United States did participate in International Commerce to help third world countries?
