As the cyber equivalent of a swift “nuh-uh!” to liberals decrying “Bush lied” about prewar intelligence leading up the war in Iraq, a tech-savvy rebuttal powered by Google has been storming the net, hailed by conservative bloggers.
Typing “Clinton Iraq 1998” into the Google search bar yields about 3.5 million hits. At the top of the list is Bill Clinton’s 1998 statement from the Oval Office on attacking Iraq published by CNN. In it, Clinton says:
“Saddam must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons… Earlier today I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces…their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.”
