My, How Things Have Changed

It’s quite intriguing to watch the following two video clips and see how our neoconservative “leaders” in the current administration have changed their tune. They said X, and have done Y. Take note for yourself:

George W. Bush:

Dick Cheney:

My, how things have changed…

And no, 9/11 didn’t “change everything”. Our “leaders” were already lusting for oil in Iraq long before that “new pearl harbor” ever took place.

    These videos remind me of a couple video clips I have on my hard drive. One is of Condi Rice saying that Saddam Hussein is not a threat to our country and that he has no WMD. The other is of Colin Powell saying the same thing.

    My how their tunes changed!

    It appears that Cheney, Rice and Powell (and probably many others) were actually against the war before they were for it.

    Kelly,

    I wonder if those videos you mention are on YouTube? I’d love to see them…

    On the other hand, look who HASN’T changed his tune:

    I just tried to access the you tube video of Colin Powell stating before the war that Saddam Hussein was no threat to us or his neighbors, and of Condi Rice saying the sanctions were working and Saddam was no threat, but I got this note from you tube when clicking on the link:

    This video has been removed due to terms of use violation

    I wonder how Powell or Rice violated the terms. I rather suspect that you tube was asked to remove them by the Powers That Be.
