Need Help Countering Claim: Dems Believed WMDs in Iraq
Advertisements [?]
On this mixed board to which I post, a freeperish type has posted multiple articles about specific Democrats who supported the * administration's claims that Saddam was developing WMDs. I already have some ideas to confront his assertions - including the fact that everyone was misled by falsified information - but I would like to hear more ideas so that I can trounce his claims.

An example:

If The Bush Administration Lied About WMD, So Did Bob Graham, Joe Lieberman, Harold Ford, & Tom Lantos

"This December will mark three years since United Nations inspectors last visited Iraq. There is no doubt that since that time, Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to refine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer- range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." -- From a December 6, 2001 letter signed by Bob Graham, Joe Lieberman, Harold Ford, & Tom Lantos
