I Would Ignore Intelligence That Pointed Towards Serious Danger?

As they say, women can change their minds. And so, we see, can ex-Presidents. The WSJ carries the following June 2004 quote from Bill Clinton. He told Time Magazine:

"You know, I have repeatedly defended President Bush against the left on Iraq, even though I think he should have waited until the U.N. inspections were over. . . . After 9/11, let's be fair here, if you had been President, you'd think, Well, this fellow bin Laden just turned these three airplanes full of fuel into weapons of mass destruction, right? Arguably they were super-powerful chemical weapons. Think about it that way.

"So, you're sitting there as President, you're reeling in the aftermath of this, so, yeah, you want to go get bin Laden and do Afghanistan and all that. But you also have to say, 'Well, my first responsibility now is to try everything possible to make sure that this terrorist network and other terrorist networks cannot reach chemical and biological weapons or small amounts of fissile material. I've got to do that.'

"That's why I supported the Iraq thing. There was a lot of stuff unaccounted for."

He has now changed his mind. Now he says invading Iraq was a "big mistake".

I guess if he were president again (or someone he was close to were president he would counsel) he would ignore the danger posed by radical Islam. He would also ignore a brutal tyrant who provided training and safe haven to the perpetrators of 9-11, was rumored by the whole international intelligence community to be pursuing nuclear weapons, and had master-minded an attempted assassination of a former president.

Bill, you have just told the nation how you would not take military steps against another country even when an international consensus advised you of his actions and intentions against the US. I expect there may be a presidential candidate in 2008 who will try to distance himself or herself from that type of irresponsibility as he/she pursues the appearance of being a credible defender of our country.

Bush says: "They spoke the truth then and they're speaking politics now."

You think?

I have some other feelings about Mr. Clinton. Remember he was the one who apologized for failing to support the Rwandans in their struggle. Hey Bill, what are doing the Iraqis?
