Dems statements on WMD's and Iraq
Published on February 2, 2004 By Capt775 In Politics
I thought that after reading what President Bush had said in "His Own Words Post", it would be good to post this also.


"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to devlop weapons of mass desruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
-President 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 or our allies is the greatest 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 conculting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary sanctions (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."
-Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he hs made a mockery of the weapons inspection process"
-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 invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue a pace and may be back to pre-Gulf status. In addition Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of an illicit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the Unted States and our allies.
Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 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 mandates of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and theats of delivering them."
-Sen Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secet 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 Hussei was developing weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept 27, 2002

"The last UN 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 Ropbert 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

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and have nuclear weapons within the next five years.. We should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
-Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10,2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biolocical weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
-Rep Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct 10, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence report show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Queda members. It is clear, however, that if left uncheckd, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
-Sen. Hilary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass desruction."
-Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec 8, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an opperssive regime... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grab for weapons of mass destruction... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real."
-Sen. John F Kerry (D, MA), JAN 23, 2003

Thank you, Capt775... great list of quotes. Funny how nobody badgered Clinton about this... oh, wait, I know... he was a Democrat.
