In 2002, then Senator Hillary Clinton enthusiastically promoted the obviously false charges against Saddam Hussein made by the Bush regime and implored her fellow Democrats to vote for preemptive war against Iraq.
She ignored the UN weapons inspectors and other experts who insisted that there was zero evidence to support Bush's claims of possession of weapons of mass destruction and an imminent threat from Iraq.
Along with 27 other Democratic Senators and 81 members of the House of Representatives, she voted Yea on Resolution 114 on October 11, 2002.
Senator Hillary Clinton, in justification of her vote to authorize the invasion, falsely insisted that Iraq's possession of such weapons was "not in doubt" and was "undisputed."
Despite her lies, Obama named her his first secretary of State and she is currently poised to become the President of the United States.
She now infamously claims in her self-serving whitewash of her criminal past "Hard Choices" that she "got it wrong"
I believe she made a political calculation to send American kids to die in a war she knew was based on lies.
From Truthout : "The Iraq War resolution backed by Reid, Biden, Clinton, Kerry and other Democratic Senate leaders claimed that "the risk that the current Iraqi regime will either employ those weapons to launch a surprise attack against the United States ...
or provide them to international terrorists who would do so … combine to justify action by the United States to defend itself."
In other words, those who supported this resolution believed, or claimed to believe, that an impoverished country, which had eliminated its stockpiles of banned weapons, destroyed its medium- and long-range missiles and eliminated its WMD programs more than a decade earlier, and had been suffering under the strictest international sanctions in world history for more than a dozen years, somehow threatened the national security of a superpower located more than 6,000 miles away. Furthermore, these members of Congress believed or claimed to believe, that this supposed threat was so great that the United States had no choice but to launch an invasion of that country, overthrow its government, and place its people under military occupation in the name of "self-defense"
The carnage and mayhem her "mistake" has unleashed upon the world cannot be overstated.
The damage done to the reputation and credibility of the United States government and it's complicit media cannot be overstated.
The mass death and chaos caused by her "mistake" in Libya are ongoing and deplorable.
We can only guess what fresh, new Hell the world will be forced to suffer from the fallout of her next "mistake"
Any sane and just society would prosecute those who launch wars based on false pretexts.
We are about to promote one of these traitors to the highest office on the planet.
Vote for a corrupt war criminal and don't be surprised when you get corruption and war.
