Leftie Views of The War In Iraq (Before The War)

In many cases these quotes came from during the last years of the Clinton Administration. If George Bush betrayed! us into war (Al Gore), then what changed between the late 90's and 2003 that turned Saddam from a bad guy, according to these lefties, to a good guy? Why was fighting him OK then, but not in 2003? Why was he definitely pursuing WMD then, but obviously wasn't in 2003--when President Bush clearly lied us into this war?

I've said it too many times to count--consistency is not a strong suit of the left.

Update, 9/24/06: What do you think about this little gem from the 1999 CNN archives?

Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has offered asylum to bin Laden, who openly supports Iraq against the Western powers.

The internet is amazing. Libs can run, but they can't hide.

Update #2, 3/19/07: Al Gore--phony and wrong regarding (among other things) the war in Iraq.
