Who is lying this time around?

Two things the Democrats must hate are : (1) the truth and (2) Republicans with long memories.

President Clinton, 1998: “We are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them.”

Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002: ” We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”

Ted Kennedy, Sept. 27, 2002: “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”

Sen. Hillary Clinton, Oct. 20, 2002: “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists, including al-Qaida members . . . if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying develop nuclear weapons.”

Sen. John F. Kerry, Jan. 23, 2003: “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime . . . the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real.”
