The 1998 Iraq Liberation Act. Clinton admits:

William J. Clinton: Statement on Signing the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998

As such, and because so many believed the Clinton Admin's intel on Iraq's WMDs, Senate D's passed the 2002 resolution instead of voting it down. 29 Senate Democrats voted yes and 21 Democrats voted no.

That's what we all get for believing a Democrat.

Dubya didn't mess up in Iraq.

It was Clinton.

Yep. Clinton sounded the alarm on Iraq's WMDs:



President Clinton orders attack on Iraq - YouTube


He also signed the Iraq Liberation Act, upon which Bush followed through.

Professional Journalists ???

Do those words belong together? Rather, I'd opt for Professional Rhetoricians, or alternatively, Professional Propagandists.

Mr. President,

You recently expressed concern that frustration in the country is breeding cynicism about democratic government. You need look no further than your own administration for a major source of that frustration politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies. We call on you to take a stand to stop the spin and let the sunshine in..."
Six years of spewing propaganda, and this is all they come up with?

Yeah, I know. Pretty lame. But at least they are finally admitting that the suppression of news by the Obama Admin all that time was politically motivated.

Yes, the Obama administration hid that it was Clinton who was at fault for Bush's invasion of Iraq. Genius. Take those tin foil hats off whenever you like.

LOL at your tin foil hat comment.

The SPJ has already openly admitted that the Obama Admin suppressed news for political gain.

"Free press," my azz. They're just the latest to wise up to the fact that they've been duped and played by the Obama Admin. Blacks are starting to get it now, too. See my thread in the Illegal Immigration forum:

Interesting twist: Blacks protest illegal alien influx
