Flashback to 1998

The Iraq Liberation Act was signed by Bill Clinton after passing through the U.S. Congress very easily. The Liberation Act stated, 'It should be the 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 that regime.'

It passed through the House by a vote of 360 to 38; it passed the Senate without a single vote in opposition.

Quotes prior to the 2000 elections:
  1. "[M]ark my words, [Saddam] will develop weapons of mass destruction. He will deploy them, and he will use them. ... Iraq [is] a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists, drug traffickers or organized criminals who travel the world among us unnoticed. If we fail to respond today, Saddam, and all those who would follow in his footsteps, will be emboldened tomorrow by the knowledge that they can act with impunity. ... Some day, some way, I guarantee you he'll use the arsenal." -- Bill Clinton
  2. "Saddam's ability to produce and deliver weapons of mass destruction poses a grave threat ... to the security of the world." -- Vice President Al "I invented the internet" Gore
  3. "We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and the security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction. ... Iraq is a long way from Ohio, but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risk that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." -- Madeline "I can leg-press 400 lbs" Albright, Secretary of State
  4. "[Saddam will] use those weapons of mass destruction again as he has ten times since 1983." -- Sandy "Deep Pockets" Berger, National Security (funny isn't it?) Advisor
  5. "The problem is not nuclear testing; it is nuclear weapons. ... The number of Third World countries with nuclear capabilities seems to grow daily. Saddam Hussein's near success with developing a nuclear weapon should be an eye-opener for us all. [Saddam] is too dangerous of a man to be given carte blanche with weapons of mass destruction." -- Senator, and Real Estate Investor Extraordinaire, Harry Reid
  6. "Serving on the Intelligence Committee and seeing day after day, week after week, briefings on Saddam's weapons of mass destruction and his plans on using those weapons, he cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons, it's just that simple. The whole world changes if Saddam ever has nuclear weapons." -- Senator John "Pretty Boy" Edwards
  7. "One of the most compelling threats we in this country face today is the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Threat assessments regularly warn us of the possibility that...Iraq...may acquire or develop nuclear weapons. [Saddam's] chemical and biological weapons capabilities are frightening." -- Dick Turban Durbin
  8. "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology, which is a threat to countries in the region, and he has made a mockery of the weapons-inspection process." -- Nancy "It's all about the children" Pelosi

Remember this was all said by Demo's before the 2000 election. Now it's, "Bush lied - people died" ... and Bush "lied us into this war" ... and Bush "cherry picked" intelligence information, yada, yada, yada. It's quite amazing to think he must have done all these acts of deception before he was elected in 2000 in order for all these clowns to say these things.
