Politics: Hoping to improve his co-president's chances in Iowa, Slick Willie says he was against Iraq from the beginning. So just who signed the Iraq Liberation Act? Millard Fillmore?
Rewriting history, Clinton said: "Even though I approved of Afghanistan and opposed Iraq from the beginning, I still resent that I was not asked or given the opportunity to support those soldiers."
First, let us repeat our observation that if wealthy liberals feel they are undertaxed, they are free to write a check to the U.S. Treasury at any time.
But opposed to Iraq from the beginning? Perhaps he forgets that, with co-president Hillary at his side, he signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998. That law made it the official policy of the United States "to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace the regime."
Jay Carson, a spokesman for the Clintons, says Bill didn't mean military action necessarily: "As he said from the beginning and many times since, President Clinton disagreed with taking the country to war in Iraq without allowing the weapons inspectors to finish their jobs."
Are these the same inspectors that Saddam Hussein kicked out of Iraq in 1998, months before Bill Clinton launched air strikes against Iraq designed to take out Saddam's allegedly nonexistent WMD facilities? Explaining the air strikes to the nation in December 1998, Clinton said: "Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors."

It was so bad even Hissy Matthews and Droolball had to talk about tonight.
Shirley you jest.
Write a check to the USO you freaking whiner.
In terms of the launching of the war, I believe we made an error in not allowing the United Nations to complete the inspections process. Now, having said that, we are where we are, says Mr. Clinton. And I think the most important thing now is for all of us to support a stable, peaceful, and pluralistic Iraq. And it looks to me like the administration is moving in that direction.From June 20, 2004
Does he agree with President Bush that the world is safer in terms of terrorism because U.S.-led forces invaded Iraq?
Let me say this. I think the Iraqis are better off with Saddam gone, if they can have a stable government, says Mr. Clinton.
Was clicking thur on my way to CNN for the debate and happened to catch the graphic. Stopped for about 30 seconds to confirm they actually were talking about BJ Clinton and what he said in Iowa. Of course it was total damage control time from Hissy. He has had the hot for BJ for years.
|First, some notable quotables from 2003:
May 19, 2003- (Associated Press): "Former President Bill Clinton accused President Bush of spending more time fighting the war on terrorism than on domestic issues during a commencement speech at Tougaloo College. 'I supported the president when he asked for authority to stand up against weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but we can't be forever strong abroad if we don't keep getting better at home," Clinton said Sunday to a crowd of about 8,000. [...] The Bush administration, Clinton said, 'is still focused on defeating terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, and that's good, but not good enough. The power of our example is just as important as our military might.'"
April 14, 2003 (Minneapolis Star Tribune): "In his first speech in Minnesota since leaving office, former President Bill Clinton on Sunday praised President Bush's handling of the war in Iraq. But he criticized Bush's domestic priorities and urged the administration to offer North Korea aid and a pledge of nonaggression in exchange for an end to that country's missile and nuclear weapons programs." [Minneapolis Star Tribune, 4/14/03]
So... I guess he means we should go to war with Iraq, but just not make it our number one priority?
Allah then points us to this:
In the crucial weekend before to the final breakdown of diplomacy in March, Mr Clinton was a guest of Mr Blair's at Chequers where the pair discussed the crisis...
That story was posted April 25, 2003. This brings us to Slick Willie being for the war on April 19th, against it April 25th, and come May, for it again.
I think my head's starting to hurt. But fasten your seatbelts, folks, because we're just getting started.
It's worth your time to see all the examples of his lying over there.
