Covering for Clinton and other stuff
This week’s “Sociocrat Sycophant” Award: “Senator Clinton gave the president the authority to use force in Iraq based on intelligence, uncontested at the time, to which she was privy and Obama was not, that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction that he was poised to use. That is what justified giving him the authority to use force. But it was George W. Bush’s administration that was not only partly responsible for the inaccurate information, but that also made the decision to give up on diplomacy and inspections and go directly to force. Nothing in the congressional vote required that.” —Susan Estrich, offering cover to the Clinton campaign.The Chronicle is up! Check it out.
