|<< How the U.N. Helped Saddam Buy Allies||Quantum Democrats >>|
Some people would like you to think President Bush lied when he talked about Saddam Hussein’s weapons. The funny thing is, many of the president’s current critics are politicians who made strikingly similar claims about Iraq in the not-too-distant past.
