Bill Clinton says in 1998: “Saddam has WMD and will use” Why isn’t he called a LIAR??

Thanks for the reminder from Gateway Pundit that this weekend is the 10th anniversary of Bill Clinton saying Saddam had WMD’s. This weekend in 1998 brought the Iraq intelligence that shaped our policy (under Clinton) to depose Saddam and got us all talking about the WMD which, as we all know, Bush (and only Bush) “lied” about. Isn’t it amazing that the liberal media continues to say that President Bush lied and then they conveniently forget that most others thought Saddam had WMD’s also? I get so sick of uninformed people quoting that ridiculous line, so here’s the link where you can see for yourself what Slick Willie said.  Also, there’s a short excerpt from the speech below.

“Together, we must confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons and the outlaw states, terrorists, and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade and much of his nation’s wealth not on providing for the Iraqi people but on developing nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. The United Nations weapons inspectors have done a truly remarkable job finding and destroying more of Iraq’s arsenal than was destroyed during the entire Gulf war. Now Saddam Hussein wants to stop them from completing their mission. I know I speak for everyone in this chamber, Republicans and Democrats, when I say to Saddam Hussein, “You cannot defy the will of the world,” and when I say to him, “You have used weapons of mass destruction before. We are determined to deny you the capacity to use them again.”
