Democrat Equals Defeat

My Townhall column notes that the Republicans have a strong case to make against "Democrat power-mongering, politics-playing, and profound lack of seriousness in protecting the American people and their vital national security interests, both at home and abroad."

Check it out.

But it was king-boy George that invaded the tinder box and set it on fire, based on sexed-up intell. At this late date, Americans can no longer trust the boy or his rubber stampers to do what is in America's best interest. They are too preoccupied with a feeding frenzy at the war profiteer and petro industry pig trough.

Geez, Earth, that's a lot of vitriol in a single paragraph!

Can you clarify one point for me? Who was it that "sexed up" the intel?

Was it France? Was it the U.N.?

Was it the former Clinton Administration and the former Democratic Congressional Majority?

Google Downing Street Memos. The public record is clear. 9-11 commission report. Sen Pat Robert's committee report. Testimony from weapons inspectors. Public statements from Tenet and Powell. Public statements by people who worked in Doug Feith's office at the Pentagon (under Cheney). Even Powell's own testimony to the UN.

President Clinton 01-27-1998:

"Together we must also confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons, and the outlaw states, terrorists and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade, and much of his nation's wealth, not on providing for the Iraqi people, but on developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them."

President Clinton 02-04-1998:

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."

Madeline Albright 02-18-1998:

"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks 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."

Al Gore 09-23-2002:

"We know that he has stored away secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."

Ted Kennedy 09-27-2002:

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."

John Kerry 01-23-2003:

"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 ...."
