My husband just found an old newspaper with this headline:

“President makes case for attack”

It’s an AP story that starts “The President ordered warships, planes and troops to the Persian Gulf Wednesday in a major buildup as he laid out his case for a possible attack on Iraq. Allowing Saddam Hussein to flout the will of the United Nations by rejecting weapons inspections would only embolden him to ‘act recklessly,’ the President said.”

I was trying to remember what it was like back then, when we still believed the lies, before war was the norm, when my husband had me look a little closer. Turns out the newspaper was dated November 12, 1998 – and the President was Bill Clinton.

Who says we need a republican to keep the war machine in motion?
