Debunking the "Bush Lied Us into War" Talking Point - Video

Via Gateway Pundit

Here is indisputable video that debunks the left-wing meme that President George W. Bush "Lied us into War" with Iraq. The video shows Democrat after Democrat from 1998 onward who stated that Saddam Hussein was a threat, and that he had weapons of mass destruction. Several of the Democrats even stated that they "supported" Bush in what he was doing.

The bottom line is that President Bush - AND the vast majority of Democrats - believed the overwhelming consensus of intelligence worldwide that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Much of that intelligence turned out to be wrong, but that does not constitute a lie. Bush no more lied than did Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Evan Bayh, Jay Rockefeller, and many other Democrats who believed the threat was grave.

Of course, even without the weapons of mass destruction, the United States was justified in removing Saddam Hussein. He had violated many U.N. Resolutions, shot at our planes in the no-fly zone, and was clearly a friend to terrorists. He was a threat, and had we not acted in 2003, we would have eventually faced the same decision later.

The Left seized upon the WMD issue once it appeared there were none as a vehicle to destroy Bush and regain power. They know that Democrats believed the intelligence just as Bush did. But the truth could be allowed to get in the way of a path to power.

Just watch this video. It makes it abundantly clear that if President Bush lied (which he did not), so did everyone else.
