Hey, wasn't that during the CLINTON Administration?

Mudville Gazette has a post of a post dealing with the "rush to war" in Iraq. But wait...

"Flight Tests Show Iraq Has Resumed a Missile Program" (July)
"U.S. Says Iraq Aided Production of Chemical Weapons in Sudan" (August)
"Iraqi Work Toward A-Bomb Reported." (September)
"Iraq Has Network of Outside Help on Arms, Experts Say" (November)
"Iraq Suspected of Secret Germ War Effort" (February)
"Signs of Iraqi Arms Buildup Bedevil U.S. Administration" (February)

"From these one could make a compelling argument that the media willingly aided and abetted the Bush White House in building a case for invasion. But there's one problem, as Kagan notes. The headlines above all appeared between 1998 and 2000 - before Bush had even secured the Republican nomination."

Read the whole thing. Definitely kicks some sand in the face of the "Bush Lied, People Died" crowd.
