    Why are you trolling through a thread on benghazzi pushing the " Bush lied Perople died " Democrat nonsense ?

    This thread is about how disgusting our current administration is, not about empty untrue Democrat rhetoric.

    IN CONTEXT those quotes STILL mean democrats thought he had WMD way before Bush went into Iraq.

    Care to add anything about Benghazzi ? Or are you going to troll some more posting irrelevent nonsense ?
    Yes, it's witch hunt thats falling apart.

    I suppose the defense would be "that stupid idiot bush KNEW there were no WMDs... the Democrats were just ... stupid?"

    Or something.... they can't seem to grasp that everyone thought there were WMDs in Iraq because Saddam had used WMDs in Iraq.

    One the Pelosi quote in 1998:


    On 16 December 1998, Nancy Pelosi, a Congressional representative from California and a member of the House Intelligence Committee, issued a statement concerning aU.S.-led military strike against Iraq:
    As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I am keenly aware that the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons is an issue of grave importance to all nations. Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.


    The responsibility of the United States in this conflict is to eliminate weapons of mass destruction, to minimize the danger to our troops and to diminish the suffering of the Iraqi people. The citizens of Iraq have suffered the most for Saddam Hussein's activities; sadly, those same citizens now stand to suffer more. I have supported efforts to ease the humanitarian situation in Iraq and my thoughts and prayers are with the innocent Iraqi civilians, as well as with the families of U.S. troops participating in the current action.


    I believe in negotiated solutions to international conflict. This is, unfortunately, not going to be the case in this situation where Saddam Hussein has been a repeat offender, ignoring the international community's requirement that he come clean with his weapons program. While I support the President, I hope and pray that this conflict can be resolved quickly and that the international community can find a lasting solution through diplomatic means.

    (In this statement Rep. Pelosi was not urging that action be taken against Iraq in order to destroy its WMD technology; she was expressing support for attacks that had already begun with that purpose as their stated objective.)
    I don't know what you think you prove by this, but a glaring insight into the mind of a super lib like Pelosi is revealed here....

    From your own quote...

    "...I believe in negotiated solutions to international conflict...."

    Since G.W. Bush couldn't, or wouldn't continue the game being played by an organization who's ultimate goal is to ensure that there are no winners in warfare, is little more than simplistic arm chair quaterbacking after the fact.

    The fact is that liberals believe that any evil can be negotiated with, and we know through history that is false.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    No, it proves you equate Keith Olbermann to journalism.

    111 Democrats voted for the invasion. The quotes that appear in the Snopes link proves that many powerful Democrats believed there were WMD's in Iraq, including Nancy Pelosi. That old horse just keeled over in my book.
