Question by I Speak For All Liberals: “Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs”, did the President lie?
Did the President lie when said this about the military action taken against Iraq citing WMD evidence as justification?

“Earlier today, I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.

Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.”

– President Bill Clinton, 1998

@Easter Bunny,

Attacking Iraq the Clinton way = bombs killing camels, Saddam still in power

Attacking Iraq the Bush way = invasion, Saddam dead!

Best answer:

Answer by Easter Bunny
I don’t know, did he?

How many men and how many trillions of dollars did Clinton’s attack cost the US?

But thanks for highlighting how Clinton attacked Iraq the smart way and Bush invaded Iraq the incredibly stupid way.

Edit: Attacking Iraq the Clinton way: budget surplus and no American lives lost.

Attacking Iraq the Bush way: 4,000 + American dead, trillions of dollars and no WMDs found.

Please GOPer, make the next election all about the Iraq invasion, I’d love nothing better.

  1. No he did not lie.
    The common thread is American interests which is oil and Israel.
    Usually when politicnas speak you have to get past the hub-bub designed to attract people who respond well to sensationalism….. like right-wingers.

  2. No, Clinton bombed the Hell of Iraq in 1998 and destroyed all of Hussein’s weapons manufacturing facilities.

    They were still destroyed when Bush lied about there being WMDs.

  3. “Terrorist decide when to start but we shall decide when to end it” so Bush said. Lies. he left it for Obama to decide unwillingly to continue it.

    Clinton never lied. American interest was at stake, Iraq had the program but not the weapons and this program and infrastructure was destroyed leaving Saddam powerless and alive but not attracting suicide attacks on American troops trapped unwillingly in Baghdad. Bush lied, got the world and American troops trapped in Baghdad open to suicide attacks on a daily basis.
