Hubris: The Selling of the Iraq War - Monday 2/18 at 9 p.m. ET

MSNBC? It will be a brazen “hit-piece” to feed the intellectually lazy Bush Derangement Syndrome "folks" if it doesn't include the following:
"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."
-----Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998
.
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
-----Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
.
"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
-----Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
.
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
-----Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998
.
"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Cons----ution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
-----Clinton, signed by: Democrat Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, & others, Oct. 9, 1998
.
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technolo---- which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-----Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
.
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
-----Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
.
"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
-----Letter to Bush, Signed by: Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001
.
"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
-----Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002
.
"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
----- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
.
"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
-----Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
.
"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
-----Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002
.
"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
----- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002
.
"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
----- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
