The Anchoress asks,
Where did the WMD Intel come from?
“Earlier today, I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors”
– President William Jefferson Clinton 12/16/98
This Iraq/WMD talk which is still upsetting the NY Times, began in 1998.
In 1998, Bill Clinton said we had intelligence that showed Iraq was making WMD and becoming a threat to the world.
As The Anchoress says, “If Clinton lied about WMD, and Bush believed him, you can’t fault Bush. If he didn’t, and Bush believed him…you can’t fault Bush.” Sigmund Carl and Alfred explain how We Went to War Because Bill Clinton Told the Truth.
Then there’s the guy that said this,
“We want Saddam Hussein to disarm but we want to achieve this through peaceful means. He obviously has the capability and desire to build prohibited weapons and probably has some hidden in his country.”
No wonder WMDs make Harry Reid’s head explode
Dr. Sanity gets the final word on this.
