that they would have been just as wrong as Bush was for buying into the lies.<quoted text>
John Kerry would have taken down Saddam just as quickly as Bush after 9/11. He considered Saddam a threat before and after 9/11 based on his own words.
Al Gore and Hillary Clinton would have taken the same action as Bush based on their own words.
Unless you're implying all of them couldn't grasp the situation at hand and would have lied to the American public after the fact as well.
What are you implying exactly?
though it's nice of you to point out that the American public was lied to after the fact, and by none of the above.
