Bush lied when he claimed Iraq possessed WMD that posed [an imminent] threat to the United States.

I always find it highly ironic that the libs ALWAYS forget the fact that one of their heroes, Bill Clinton, thought the same thing.


I find it telling that your reply is only true if you edit my sentence, removing the bold above, to change it's meaning. That's dishonest, don't you think?


And that the rest of the world's leaders thought the same thing.

No. I don't think there's a single world leader who thought that Iraq's supposed meagre WMD program posed a threat to the United States, imminent or otherwise.

But that's off-topic. Bush knew perfectly well what Iraq's capabilities truly were and he (and others) lied about it to generate support for the war.
