Condiliar lies again
On December 15, 1998, the head of the U.N. weapons inspection team in Iraq, Richard Butler, released a report accusing Iraq of not fully cooperating with inspections. The next day, Butler withdrew his inspectors from Iraq, in anticipation of a U.S.-British bombing campaign that began that evening.Condiliar Rice, Sunday in Beijing:
I think we sometimes forget what Saddam Hussein was like. We went to war in 1991 because he tried to annex his neighbor, Kuwait -- or, actually, annexed his neighbor, Kuwait. We used force against him in 1998 because he threw out inspectors and the concerns of weapons of mass destruction.She's lying about why we went to war in 1991, too, but that's a slightly more complicated story. We attacked Iraq in 1991, 1998, and 2003 because, well, that's just what we do.
