Bill Clinton Is Shameless, Too (What Evidence Of WMD?)
This post is the companion piece to my “Bill Clinton is no-class slime” post. Here, again, is the Clinton quote:
Breaking with tradition under which US presidents mute criticisms of their successors, Clinton said the Bush administration had decided to invade Iraq “virtually alone and before UN inspections were completed, with no real urgency, no evidence that there were weapons of mass destruction.”
Below are links to just a few of the many previous references to “evidence” that Bill Clinton has to be aware of, since many of them came from his own mouth. For example, in October 2003 he seemed to believe Saddam had WMD:
“When Clinton was here recently he told me he was absolutely convinced, given his years in the White House and the access to privileged information which he had, that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction until the end of the Saddam regime,” . – Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Manuel Durao Barroso said in an interview with Portuguese cable news channel SIC Noticias. Glenn Reynolds called this a blow to the “Bush lied” crowd.
Following are links to just a few of many other examples.
