Another Bush lie

Before the November US elections, President George W. Bush promised never to put US troops “in the crossfire” of Iraq’s warring sectarian groups. Last week, he made clear that his new strategy would do just that.

One of the pitfalls of being the smartest woman in the world means that people hang on your every word. They also make note of the things you say. In the case of Hillary Clinton, this is not good. You know that she was all in favor of deposing Saddam Hussein in 2003 prior to the invasion, but now she is squarely against the war. What you may not know is just how different her statements on the subject are some 4 years later.

For example, from 2003: "I ended up voting for the resolution after carefully reviewing the information, intelligence that I had available, talking with people whose opinions I trusted, tried to discount the political or other factors that I didn't believe should be in any way a part of this decision." Oh really? You carefully reviewed the information? Carefully reviewed the intelligence? So you didn't make your decision lightly, Senator Clinton?

Well, sometime in the last four years she must've fallen and bumped her head.

Now in 2007, things sure have changed mightily: "So he took the authority that I and others gave him and he misused it, and I regret that deeply. And if we had known then what we know now, there never would have been a vote and I never would have voted to give this president that authority." But wait, Ms. Rodham! We thought you carefully reviewed the information? That means you didn't just take Bush's word for everything. So ... wasn't your fact-finding exercise every bit as faulty as was the president's?

Here's a prediction: in the next 21 months, everything Hillary Clinton has ever said is going to be exposed. More contradictions to come.
