Democrats on WMD's

Sean gets it right again!

"Walter Williams, a very wise man, has some choice quotes from key democrats in his essay 'Saddam Hussein's weapons.'
Sen. John Kerry, Democratic presidential front-runner, said in 2002, 'I will be voting to give the president of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.'
In January 2003, Kerry added, '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.'

He has several other quotes (Bill Clinton, Madaline Albright, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy) that do equal damage to the absurd Democratic assertion that President Bush misslead the world about Iraq and WMD's.

The fact of the matter is that former President Clinton, as well as many members of Congress, believed, just as President Bush did, that Saddam Hussein possessed or was developing biological, chemical and nuclear weapons. The widespread attacks on President Bush are little more than political demagoguery and grandstanding and depend on public forgetfulness and ignorance to succeed. ...

Listening to today’s politicians and what goes for informed media commentary, George Bush should have waited for unambiguous proof that a megalomaniac tyrant like Saddam Hussein had nuclear-chemical-biological weapons. I’m wondering if that unambiguous proof sufficient for America’s political hustlers and gullible public would have been a mushroom cloud over one of our cities or millions of Americans suffering and dying from chemical or biological toxins."
