Dem WMD Quotes

There's a nice sample of Democrats whining about how Saddam Hussein has WMD and has to be stopped – blah, blah, blah. I characterize it in that way with my tongue in my cheek, now that the Deulfer Report has told us that Saddam had no such weapons of mass destruction for the entire decade of the 1990s.

Here are a few from Znet:

  • "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." - President Bill Clinton, February 17, 1998

  • "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." - Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), December 16, 1998

  • "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." - Al Gore, September 23, 2002.

    Now, note that the Kerry and Edwards both are attempting to blame their past statements on the bad intelligence while leaving the impression that President Bush is responsible for that intelligence. The Kerry campaign sent Bob Graham onto the Sunday circuit a few weeks ago to suggest that the President had more and better intelligence than did JF, implying that he knew that Saddam would have no WMD.

    The President has been fighting this at every stop, but one wonders how it is sinking in with people who just aren't paying attention. They heard "Bush lied," and they tuned out.
