Well, Yeah, We Lied and Started a War, But It's Clinton's Fault

White House defends decisions that led to war
Democrats, too, saw Saddam as a threat, presidential spokesman says
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The White House sought to deflect politically charged questions Wednesday about President Bush’s use of prewar intelligence in Iraq, saying Democrats, too, had concluded Saddam Hussein was a threat.

“If Democrats want to talk about the threat that Saddam Hussein posed and the intelligence, they might want to start with looking at the previous administration and their own statements that they’ve made,

Not a funny one, but a total joke. By far, the absolute stupidest argument I have ever heard (and sometimes still hear) from those trying to protect the Bush regime is that of "well, the Dems voted for the war". Nope, that doesn't fly as an argument to defend the lies the administration told Congress to get authorization for their war. The only reason that anyone in Congress (aside from war hawks) voted for the war was because the Bush regime was selling it to them with information (now known to be lies) about WMD, chemical and biological weapons, an Iraqi tie to Al Qaida (and thus Bush's favorite song and dance 9/11), and mobil chemical labs, among other falsehoods. Let's even suppose that the Dems, or anyone for that matter, supported the war and voted for it because they were convinced (by Bush or otherwise) that Iraq was building the bomb, and they were going to use it on us. What is wrong with changing their mind after no weapons, weapons programs, or any evidence of any kind was found supporting the original reason for invasion? Also, let's not forget that Bush ordered the UN inspectors out of Iraq so he could begin his invasion when he began to see that the inspectors were not going to find WMD. Amazing how the R's can spin it, and sell it to America through the mainstream media. Let's all hope that America is waking up.

Wow... let's see what other rumors we can start by stretching the truth like this! lmao
