WHAT THE CLINTONITES SAID

About Saddam’s nuke program. I guess I should say I’m all in favor of examining how we got the WMD issue so wrong; and whether there was any shady business on the Bush administration’s part in selectively presenting intelligence. But the notion that this was the only reason given for deposing Saddam before the war, or that the nuclear matter was the only WMD concern, or that the Bush administration was in any way out of the ordinary in making the claims it did – is just empirically, historically wrong. As a matter of U.S. policy, the shift toward support for regime change in Iraq occurred under Clinton, not Bush. More evidence here.
