13. Me being me..the Misbegotten War On Iraq
was and will always be the defining issue on any election or any gage of my candidates. The ones who were courageous and knew a deadly scam when they saw one against those who were willing to sacrifice the blood of others for their political ambitions.

And miss hilary fits in the former..

"Why Hillary's war vote excuses do not fly"

"She didn't read the classified 90 page NIE as she was supposed to read. Sen. Bob Graham begged the senators to read it before voting on the IWR. More about the NIE here.

She voted for the IWR/AUMF which was a blank check authorization for war and it's title reads: "A joint resolution to authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq." Floor speech (video)
She voted against the Levin amendment (which was a multilateral approach). See: The Senates Forgotten Iraq Choice..

She voted against the Durbin amendment whose purpose was: "To amend the authorization for the use of the Armed Forces to cover an imminent threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction rather than the continuing threat posed by Iraq." Saddam was not imminent threat, and hence that amendment would have prevented a war." ...

And she continues to lie..


"In Thursday nights Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton lied again about Iraq.

At the forum in Los Angeles, Hillary Clinton declared, We bombed them for days in 1998 because Saddam Hussein threw out inspectors.

That statement was totally false. The bombing campaign had been planned for months and the inspectors were not thrown out. They were ordered out by President Bill Clinton in anticipation of the four-day U.S.-led bombing campaign.
