Republican Platform in 2000 Called for Removal of Saddam Hussein


If Bush was still seeking to peacefully persuade Saddam Hussein to eliminate his nonexistent weapons of mass destruction during the period when Bush's own public statements, those of his staff, and official minutes of secret meetings say otherwise, how does he justify having been so disloyal to the 2000 Republican Party Platform?

Excerpted from the Republican party platform for the 2000 election, available at
http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2000/conventions/republican/features/platform.00/#53

"We support the full implementation of the Iraq Liberation Act, which should be regarded as a starting point in a comprehensive plan for the removal of Saddam Hussein and the restoration of international inspections in collaboration with his successor. Republicans recognize that peace and stability in the Persian Gulf is impossible as long as Saddam Hussein rules Iraq."

I thank you for bringing back the whole speech, even tho it made me sick to read it, after all that has been said and done. Not to take away all the hateful right winger's and the total refusal to see the moron for what he is.

I quess the DSM is just icing on the cake..
