They have yet to note that Billy Clinton ordered the regime change in Iraq and made it law. Did they think that was going to come about by merely saying it would? like Saddam was going to take a vacation and never come back?<quoted text>
But I notice you didn't explain why every prominent democrat believed Saddam was a threat and had to be removed from power even before 9/11.
"Congress passed and President Clinton signed into law the Iraq Liberation Act, making regime change in Iraq the policy of the United States government and approving nearly $100 million to fund Iraqi opposition groups working for Saddam's ouster.
That December, President Clinton launched Operation Desert Fox, a four-day air strike campaign meant to diminish Saddam's weapons capabilities. "If Saddam defies the world and we fail to respond, we will face a far greater threat in the future," President Clinton said. "Mark my words, he will develop weapons of mass destruction. He will deploy them, and he will use them." There was bipartisan support for the operation."
