Bob Dole Rips Scott McClellan a New One

Bob Dole is not happy with Scott McClellan's sleazy attempt at a book and he let him have it, man to punk. Jonathan Martin at the Politico intercepted the email and has the story:

"There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don't have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues," Dole wrote in a message sent yesterday morning. "No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits and, spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique."

"In my nearly 36 years of public service I've known of a few like you," Dole writes, recounting his years representing Kansas in the House and Senate. "No doubt you will 'clean up' as the liberal anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild enthusiasm. When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, 'Biting The Hand That Fed Me.' Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years"

That had to have smarted. I think McClellan is still seeing stars.

Fair point, but it hardly refutes any of McClellan's claims.

The funny thing is how the Democrats are all jumping in to tell us how McClellan has Revealed the Truth, while not noticing that his main claims on the invasion of Iraq directly refute almost everything the left has been screaming about for the last few years. It was about changing the government in Iraq and reshaping the Mideast away from Islamicism, not oil, not revenge for Bush's father, and not any of those other silly-ass claims we've been getting from the "reality" folks.

In other words, it really was for the main reason we've been telling the left, and that they've been screaming isn't true.

So, since McC has come forward and shown the left to have been so wrong about the motivations for invading Iraq, are they going to apologize for their claims over the last five years?

You say this, but then you limit the claims from "the left" only to "those other silly-ass claims we've been getting from the 'reality' folks." In other words, "the left" to you is D.U.

You're guilty of what Bush is guilty of, which is only paying attention to the fringe, and ignoring everyone else.

We know. The questions from the rational crowd, though, were, "is there an imminent threat that requires this", and "do we have a workable plan for achieving it?"

We've already learned by observation that the answers were "no" and "no". What McClellan adds is the revelation that Bush knew those same answers himself, but told the public otherwise.

The fun will be in the future. Boooosh will leave office. Boooosh will get invited to make thousands of speaches around the world. Boooosh can arm himself with a little black book for each speach and ruin people like McClellan, the media talking heads, and half the politicians in the democrat party. Will he? Probably not, but for a fact he can and it will be up to him. I would enjoy watching him do it. One such speach and the democrat weasels would break out in a cold sweat every time he hit the trail. Like a Dimmy Carter in reverse, someone with a brain attacking the left.

Now all of you lefties ego's are wounded (that's all that will ever be wounded in cowards) since you now know you back only cowards and someone else took action. Go ahead and call a Vietnam vet with 22 years service a chickenhawk (a bird of prey), you know you want to. Just don't call me to put the fire out in your home (I am a 'volunteer' firefigher also).

Iraq Liberation Act of 1998

One Hundred Fifth Congress

of the

United States of America

AT THE SECOND SESSION

Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday,

the twenty-seventh day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-eight

An Act

To establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Iraq Liberation Act of 1998'.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

The Congress makes the following findings:

(1) On September 22, 1980, Iraq invaded Iran, starting an 8 year war in which Iraq employed chemical weapons against Iranian troops and ballistic missiles against Iranian cities.

(2) In February 1988, Iraq forcibly relocated Kurdish civilians from their home villages in the Anfal campaign, killing an estimated 50,000 to 180,000 Kurds.

(3) On March 16, 1988, Iraq used chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurdish civilian opponents in the town of Halabja, killing an estimated 5,000 Kurds and causing numerous birth defects that affect the town today.

(4) On August 2, 1990, Iraq invaded and began a 7 month occupation of Kuwait, killing and committing numerous abuses against Kuwaiti civilians, and setting Kuwait's oil wells ablaze upon retreat.

(5) Hostilities in Operation Desert Storm ended on February 28, 1991, and Iraq subsequently accepted the ceasefire conditions specified in United Nations Security Council Resolution 687 (April 3, 1991) requiring Iraq, among other things, to disclose fully and permit the dismantlement of its weapons of mass destruction programs and submit to long-term monitoring and verification of such dismantlement.

(6) In April 1993, Iraq orchestrated a failed plot to assassinate former President George Bush during his April 14-16, 1993, visit to Kuwait.

(7) In October 1994, Iraq moved 80,000 troops to areas near the border with Kuwait, posing an imminent threat of a renewed invasion of or attack against Kuwait.

(8) On August 31, 1996, Iraq suppressed many of its opponents by helping one Kurdish faction capture Irbil, the seat of the Kurdish regional government.

(9) Since March 1996, Iraq has systematically sought to deny weapons inspectors from the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq (UNSCOM) access to key facilities and documents, has on several occasions endangered the safe operation of UNSCOM helicopters transporting UNSCOM personnel in Iraq, and has persisted in a pattern of deception and concealment regarding the history of its weapons of mass destruction programs.

(10) On August 5, 1998, Iraq ceased all cooperation with UNSCOM, and subsequently threatened to end long-term monitoring activities by the International Atomic Energy Agency and UNSCOM.

(11) On August 14, 1998, President Clinton signed Public Law 105-235, which declared that `the Government of Iraq is in material and unacceptable breach of its international obligations' and urged the President `to take appropriate action, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of the United States, to bring Iraq into compliance with its international obligations.'.

(12) On May 1, 1998, President Clinton signed Public Law 105-174, which made $5,000,000 available for assistance to the Iraqi democratic opposition for such activities as organization, training, communication and dissemination of information, developing and implementing agreements among opposition groups, compiling information to support the indictment of Iraqi officials for war crimes, and for related purposes.

SEC. 3. SENSE OF THE CONGRESS REGARDING UNITED STATES POLICY TOWARD IRAQ.

It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime.

SEC. 4. ASSISTANCE TO SUPPORT A TRANSITION TO DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ.

(a) AUTHORITY TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE- The President may provide to the Iraqi democratic opposition organizations designated in accordance with section 5 the following assistance:

(2) MILITARY ASSISTANCE- (A) The President is authorized to direct the drawdown of defense articles from the stocks of the Department of Defense, defense services of the Department of Defense, and military education and training for such organizations.

(B) The aggregate value (as defined in section 644(m) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961) of assistance provided under this paragraph may not exceed $97,000,000.

(b) HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE- The Congress urges the President to use existing authorities under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to provide humanitarian assistance to individuals living in areas of Iraq controlled by organizations designated in accordance with section 5, with emphasis on addressing the needs of individuals who have fled to such areas from areas under the control of the Saddam Hussein regime.

(c) RESTRICTION ON ASSISTANCE- No assistance under this section shall be provided to any group within an organization designated in accordance with section 5 which group is, at the time the assistance is to be provided, engaged in military cooperation with the Saddam Hussein regime.

(d) NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT- The President shall notify the congressional committees specified in section 634A of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 at least 15 days in advance of each obligation of assistance under this section in accordance with the procedures applicable to reprogramming notifications under section 634A.

(b) DESIGNATION OF ADDITIONAL ORGANIZATIONS- At any time subsequent to the initial designation pursuant to subsection (a), the President may designate one or more additional Iraqi democratic opposition organizations that the President determines satisfy the criteria set forth in subsection (c) as eligible to receive assistance under section 4.

(c) CRITERIA FOR DESIGNATION- In designating an organization pursuant to this section, the President shall consider only organizations that--

(1) include a broad spectrum of Iraqi individuals, groups, or both, opposed to the Saddam Hussein regime; and

SEC. 7. ASSISTANCE FOR IRAQ UPON REPLACEMENT OF SADDAM HUSSEIN REGIME.

It is the sense of the Congress that once the Saddam Hussein regime is removed from power in Iraq, the United States should support Iraq's transition to democracy by providing immediate and substantial humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people, by providing democracy transition assistance to Iraqi parties and movements with democratic goals, and by convening Iraq's foreign creditors to develop a multilateral response to Iraq's foreign debt incurred by Saddam Hussein's regime.

SEC. 8. RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.

Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize or otherwise speak to the use of United States Armed Forces (except as provided in section 4(a)(2)) in carrying out this Act.

Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Vice President of the United States and

President of the Senate.

And before you point out Section 8, Brian, that's what the 2002 Iraq Resolution addressed -- it put the final piece in place that was missing from the above document.

Note, also, how many of the "excuses" George W. Bush allegedly hyped or made up were cited in this measure passed two years before he became president.

Herman:

Yes, U.S. foreign policy over the past decades has been to press for Democracy in Iraq. Heck, U.S. policy has been to press for Democracy ANYWHERE it does not exist! But we're not going to be invading Burma now, are we guys???

What Mr. Tea, Cirby, Scrapiron and the rest fail to point out is obvious: the war was not sold on spreading Democracy nor on nation-building, it was sold on the premise THAT SADDAM DEFINITELY HAD WMD, AND PRESENTED A GATHERING, INDEED, IMMINENT (per Ari Fleischer) THREAT!!!! That is to say, to the EVERLASTING SHAME OF REPUBLICANS, THE WAR WAS SOLD ON LIES.

Now when the truth is again revealed for all to see, the conservatives look away.

And don't even think, conservatives, about claiming that this agency or that person had proclaimed (most often YEARS earlier) that Saddam had nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons. How many of these weapons were found by the UN Weapons Inspectors, YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE ON THE GROUND ACTUALLY LOOKING FOR THE DAMN THINGS JUST BEFORE BUSH INVADED???? Give us a nice round number, conservatives. Hint: very round. So after the invasion, how many did Mr. Kay and Mr. Duelfer find? Hint: see previous hint.

"There are miserable creatures like you [McClellan] in every administration who don't have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues" -- Bob Dole

Rather harsh words from the former senator. But hey, at least Scottie eventually saw the light, spoke up, and crept out of Dick Cheney's "dark side," unlike all those dwindling, contemptibly pathetic Republican Bush Toadies. History will judge them far, FAR more harshly.

Thanks for the advice, Jay. I especially appreciate how you didn't just stop at offering it, but then you continued on to demonstrate yourself what it looks like when you don't follow it.

And before you point out Section 8, Brian,

LOL! So in other words, "here's something to prove you wrong, but before you point out that it does nothing of the sort..."

Scrappy's point was that "the invasion of Iraq ... was set in stone", and to defend him you cite an act that goes out of its way to explicitly declare that that is not is purpose. Well done.

that's what the 2002 Iraq Resolution addressed

And Scraps also said, "The invasion of Iraq ... was approved/mandated by congress and signed by Slick Willie". Hmm, who was president in 2002, Jay?

Really, Jay. Have you nothing better to do on a Saturday morning than try to untwist the words delusional words of someone who does not hesitate to spew whatever false angry nonsense happens to cross his mind?

You lefties can whine all you want and twist your stories but you do not own the facts. The war with Iraq started in 1991 and a cease fire was proclaimed for as long as Saddam obeyed the rules of the cease fire. (like JT's post above proves) democrats do not follow rules if it gets in their way. I remember quite a few highly ranked democrats saying Saddam had WMD as well as a number of countries AND the UN. So, again, the lefty loons live in the alternate universe where things are the opposite of what they say. ww

Complete rubbish. WildWillie, after around 4 months of searching, the UN Weapons Inspectors found no chemical weapons, no biological weapons, and no nuclear weapons (not even the "reconstituted" ones that Dick Cheney lied about).

Get that? Got that? Good.

But before finishing up the inspectors had to leave, because the George "I-Love-to-Read-about-Pet Goats-when-the -country's-Under-Attack" Bush was going to invade. So later on, the U.S. conducted its own search, AND AGAIN FOUND NOTHING. No surprise there.

I think Marc said it best when talking about some books on a previous thread:

I could care less about books written as "political tell-alls" no matter what side of the aisle they come from. They have been in the past, and will continue to be an utter waste of time.

That's the same reason I never read any of the "tell all" books about Bill Clinton.

The most astonishing common thread in them is the authors, right or left, were always somehow above the fray, they were an island in a sea of insanity, greed and downright evil. They were without any agenda politically, socially or militarily and are giving the reader a full account and unbiased view.

Some folk would lie and even sell their very soul for fame and fortune. Perhaps, that also is what happened here.

I've read your comments here at Wizbang for quite a while.

I certainly don't agree with your political point of view, but hey, that's why we are here. However, lately, your tone, choice of words and more frequent personal attacks have the effect of just diluting your point. I admit it's fun to occasionally go after a commenter here (lava is my favorite) but to make it your trademark does none of us any good.

Liberal commenters at wizbang are what make this blog enjoyable, entertaining and challenging. It's a hell of a lot more fun to debate you on substance and principle.

If SM's observations were true and he did nothing, then he is a reprehensible slug, and if they are distortions and fantasies, he's a reprehensible parasite. Despite all the blathering about the accuracy of the observations quoted above, I think we're still a long way from knowing what really went on. At this point I don't really care.
