He can’t even remember because he’s flip-flopped so much. But currently (at least at last check) he claims that he was against the Iraq war from the beginning. Cassy Fiono at Wizbang found some good stuff on the net that really points to Clinton’s waffling on Iraq.
Here’s a sample:
May 19, 2003 — ‘I supported the president when he asked for authority to stand up against weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
April 14, 2003 — former President Bill Clinton on Sunday praised President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq
June 24, 2004 — Former President Clinton has revealed that he continues to support President Bush’s decision to go to war in Iraq but chastised the administration over the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison.
Dizzy yet? Not a surprise, coming from one who governed with his finger in the wind to see which way things were blowing.
Now let’s just see how the enemedia treats this….
I’ll admit that I am pleasantly surprised from looking at a Google News Search…
