Letter to the Editor

Running now

Thursday, February 5, 2004

Dear Editor,

Since we haven't found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq yet, a lot of the anti-war, anti-Bush crowd is claiming that the Bush administration lied about Iraq's WMD. They story being floated around now is that Saddam had no WMD (or almost none) and that the Bush administration didn't tell the the truth about the WMD threat.

Well, if they're going to claim that Bush lied, then there sure are a lot of other people, including quite a few prominent Democrats who have told the same lies since inspectors pulled out of Iraq in 1998. Here are a few examples:

1. "We urge you, after consulting with Congress and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its WMD programs," This, from a letter signed by Joe Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Mulski, Tom Daschle and John Kerry among others on Oct. 9, 1998.

Similar letters were written and signed by Bob Graham, Joe Lieberman, Harold Ford and Tom Lantos on Dec. 6, 2001. Barbara Boxer on Nov. 8, 2002, Madeline Albright in 1998, Robert Byrd October 2002, Jacques Chirac on Oct. 16, 2003, Bill Clinton in 1998, Hillary Clinton, Oct. 10, 2002, William Cohen, Clinton Secretary of Defense in April 2003, Tom Daschle in 1998, John Edwards on Oct. 10, 2002, Dick Gephardt in September 2002, Al Gore in 2002, Ted Kennedy in September 2003, John Kerry in Oct. 2002, Nancy Pilosi on Dec. 16, 1998, Ex-UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter in 1998, John Rockefeller on Oct. 10, 2002, Henry Waxman on Oct. 10, 2002 and there are others.

Now, some of these raving moonbats are out campaigning for president! God Bless America!

Roselyn Fitzgerald,
