Bill Clinton
U.S. President, 1992-2000.


Force will contain Saddam Hussein’s WMD’s

“The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his region, the security of the world. The credible threat to use force, and when necessary the actual use of force, is the surest way to contain Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction program (and) curtail his aggression.”

It depends on what ‘is’ means.

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the – if he – if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not – that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely , true statement [. . .] Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having sexual relations with M. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

Saddam Hussein has used WMD.

“Other countries possess weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles. With Saddam, there is one big difference: He has used them, not once, but repeatedly. Unleashing chemical weapons against Iranian troops during a decade-long war. Not only against soldiers, but against civilians, firing Scud missiles at the citizens of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Iran. And not only against a foreign enemy, but even against his own people, gassing Kurdish civilians in Northern Iraq. The international community had little doubt then, and I have no doubt today, that left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will use these terrible weapons again.”

If we fail to act regarding Iraq’s WMD.

“[L]et’s imagine the future. What if he [Saddam Hussein] fails to comply and we fail to act, or we take some ambiguous third route, which gives him yet more opportunities to develop this program of weapons of mass destruction and continue to press for the release of the sanctions and continue to ignore the solemn commitments that he made? Well, he will conclude that the international community has lost its will. He will then conclude that he can go right on and do more to rebuild an arsenal of devastating destruction. And some day, some way, I guarantee you he’ll use the arsenal. And I think every one of you who has really worked on this for any length of time, believes that, too.”

Iraq has WMD.

“In the next century, the community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now — a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists, drug traffickers, or organized criminals who travel the world among us unnoticed. If we fail to respond today, Saddam, and all those who would follow in his footsteps, will be emboldened tomorrow by the knowledge that they can act with impunity, even in the face of a clear message from the United Nations Security Council, and clear evidence of a weapons of mass destruction program.”

The threat of Iraq’s WMD.

“If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”

The “wrong” kind of faith.

“The wrong kind of faith leads to division and conflict. Prejudice and contempt cloaked in the presence of religion or political conviction are no different. These forces have nearly destroyed our nation in the past. We shall overcome them. We shall replace them with a generous spirit of a people that feel at home with one another.”

Where: Whan a critic told him, during Clinton’s second campaign for governor, that he was nothing but a “two-bit politician” and then walked away. Clinton made the comment to a campaign aide, Samuel Wilson, former political worker for Clinton, who said, “I remember his look. It was cold. I don’t want to think he wanted to kill him literally, but I'm sure some sort of revege was inflicted later on.”
