    It's a damn shame about all the nutball shooters lately, isn't it? THANKS OBAMA!
    If obama starts subsidizing guns for nutballs then maybe you can blame him for shootings. Bush used the taxpayers money to subsidize loans for people that can't afford them. He considered it one of his biggest accomplishments. What happened in 2008 was the culmination of failed bush policies.

    Well, I didn't get it from Bushes archives.

    I bet Bush's administration got it from the same source I did.

    He was passable. Not as good as Truman, Eisenhower, LBJ, Reagan, Bush/41 or Clinton, but better than JFK, Nixon, Carter, or Obama. I don't rate Ford because his tenure was too brief.

    The same the Bush archieves uses A Decade of Deception and Defiance: Table of Contents

    None the less it doesn't change the fact that it was a lie.

    Thats not the part you quoted in post #31. You quoted page 18 from "A Decade of Deception and Defiance" http://usiraq.procon.org/sourcefiles...20Defiance.pdf

    It says: "Iraq shelters the Abu Nidal Organization, an international terrorist organization that has carried out
    terrorist attacks in twenty countries, killing or injuring almost 900 people. Targets have included the
    United States and several other Western nations. Each of these groups have offices in Baghdad and
    receive training, logistical assistance, and financial aid from the government of Iraq.5"
    And: "In April 2002, Saddam Hussein increased from $10,000 to $25,000 the money offered to families of
    Palestinian suicide/homicide bombers."

    Which is exactly what you stated in your post.

    So what part of the quote are you having a problem with ?

    These were used by the Bush administration, they aren't their words but other findings by other people.

    On the original link I just provided there were some VP Cheney's words but I didn't use them.
