The ‘Hussein’ memory hole
In responding to Hillary Clinton’s latest ad, the Obama campaign has once again slipped the name “Hussein” down the memory hole. Specifically Saddam Hussein. Obama’s answer to the question as to who is best prepared to take a 3 A.M. call is that he is better than Clinton because he did not support dealing with Saddam to a final conclusion.
Just because Clinton does not want to open the issue doesn’t mean others cannot. Obama needs to be grilled on what other actions should have been taken against Saddam. A recent 60 Minutes segment with FBI agant George Piro revealed Saddam’s plans directly from Saddam
“In fact, Piro says Saddam intended to produce weapons of mass destruction again, some day. “The folks that he needed to reconstitute his program are still there,” Piro says.
“And that was his intention?” Pelley asks.
“Yes,” Piro says.
“What weapons of mass destruction did he intend to pursue again once he had the opportunity?” Pelley asks.
“He wanted to pursue all of WMD. So he wanted to reconstitute his entire WMD program,” says Piro.
“Chemical, biological, even nuclear,” Pelley asks.
“Yes,” Piro says. “
So Obama wanted us to mimic the Three Little Monkeys, who See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil. Then Saddam’s efforts to bribe the venal through the Oil for Food program and fool the willfully ignorant like Obama, would have given us a bloodthristy dicatator who was re-developing “Chemical, biological, even nuclear” weapons”.
That’s quite a resume enhancer (at least in Kos Kiddieland)!
