"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them.
That is our bottom line."
President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998-Truth!
This was a quote from President Clinton during a presentation at the Pentagon defending a decision to conduct military strikes against Iraq.

edsinger for the last few days you have been doing a great job in ATS in favor of bush/Cheney campaign but I have to burst your bubble but most of the topics have been discussed in ATS before without the sensationalism.
Yet on this day, with a Gallup poll showing that 58 percent of Americans did not believe President Bush had done enough to explain why the United States should act against Iraq, . . .
. . .[O]n Sept. 13, the day the article appeared, the Energy Department sent a directive FORBIDDING employees from discussing the subject with reporters.
The tubes now sought by Iraq had precisely the same dimensions - a perfect match [for slim rockets fired from launcher pods.
Yes, it was theoretically possible, but as an Energy Department analyst later told Senate investigators, it was also theoretically possible to "turn your new Yugo into a Cadillac."
In his Nashville speech, Mr. Cheney had not mentioned the aluminum tubes or any other fresh intelligence when he said, ''We now know that Saddam has resumed his efforts to acquire nuclear weapons.'' The one specific source he did cite was Hussein Kamel al-Majid, . . . But Mr. Majid told American intelligence officials in 1995 that Iraq's nuclear program had been dismantled.
On ''Meet the Press,'' Mr. Cheney said he knew ''for sure'' and ''in fact'' and ''with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY'' that Mr. Hussein was buying equipment to build a nuclear weapon.
''He has reconstituted his nuclear program,'' Mr. Cheney said flatly.
