Iraq Quotes Blog
Jason Barnes has launched a new B*S blog called The Who Said It Game – Iraq Style. He describes it as,
A repository of quotes from prominent Democrats regarding pre-war intelligence on weapons of mass destruction in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.
“Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ..”
John Kerry – November 9, 1997
“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 Qaeda members . It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
Hillary Clinton – October 10, 2002
Not exactly pithy but an interesting way of making a point that’s been stated repeatedly: There was simply no controversy that Saddam had a WMD program or, indeed, actually used WMD.
Jason is soliciting more quotes for the collection.
