Jeebuz, Fred, it would have been better if you would have shouted "Sex!" out loud at your last gathering.

At least you wouldn't have come across as more of an idiot for saying that Saddam had WMD's.

Fred Thompson: Iraq had WMDs prior to invasion.

Quote:
Former Sen. Fred Thompson, speaking in Iowa today, declared that Iraq did indeed have WMDs prior to the U.S. invasion. The Des Moines Register reports:

[Thompson] was certain former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction prior to the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, a point of contention in the 4.5 years since the war began.

“We can’t forget the fact that although at a particular point in time we never found any WMD down there, he clearly had had WMD. He clearly had had the beginnings of a nuclear program,” the former Tennessee senator told an audience of about 60 at a Newton cafe.

Of course he had WMD at one time. WE gave them to him and gave him permission to use them

But that was a while ago--too long for them to be usable in 2003. And he said what he had was destroyed, and we are the ones who kicked the inspectors out in order to bomb Iraq.

I wish people could keep their minds on the pertinent factors. But of course with all those celebrities to keep track of, who needs to understand what is happening in our government, eh?

Ah, hell...Old Fred probably thinks they're under the chairs in the Oval Office or wherever it was Bush went looking for them once upon a time, while his puppet media thought he was very funny.

:puke:

Thompson makes me sick..
