What he said, part II

I recently found this quote from the president, and I find it says a hell of a lot about what’s going on in Iraq today. I still have to kick it around a little, but I think I will end up agreeing with the President 100%.

“The United States wants Iraq to rejoin the family of nations as a freedom-loving and law-abiding member. This is in our interest and that of our allies within the region.
The United States favors an Iraq that offers its people freedom at home. I categorically reject arguments that this is unattainable due to Iraq’s history or its ethnic or sectarian make-up. Iraqis
deserve and desire freedom like everyone else.
The United States looks forward to a democratically supported regime that would permit us to enter into a dialogue leading to the reintegration of Iraq into normal international life.”

President William Jefferson Clinton, speaking eight years ago today, when he signed the Iraq Liberation Act.

A pity that his deeds, as is often the case, did not match his words. By the time he left office a little over two years later, only a tiny fraction of the $98 million dollars set aside by the measure.
