You must watch this video of Al Gore in 1992, then the Vice Presidential candidate to Bill Clinton, as he rips then President George H.W. Bush up one side and down the other for ignoring the threat of Saddam Hussein. You won’t believe it until you see it. Al Gore accused George H.W. Bush of ignoring and then hiding from the American people Saddam’s efforts to build nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and Saddam’s ties to terrorists. Al was particularly outraged that Saddam used these chemical weapons against his own people. Take a look, and as you watch it, keep at the front of your mind that when George W. Bush pointed to the exact same things about Saddam Hussein as a reason for attacking Iraq, Al Gore screamed that Bush “betrayed this country! He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place!”
Interesting, isn’t it, that Saddam Hussein is a weapons of mass destruction-seeking terrorist despot who must be removed only when it’s politically expedient for Al Gore.
