Deacon has posted some interesting comments about whether Al Gore’s opportunistic flip-flops on Iraq, and national security policy generally, are the most shameless in American history. Here, courtesy of Vin Weber, is more evidence:
Al Gore on Monday:
“Now, back in 1991, I was one of the handful of Democrats in the United States
Senate to vote in favor of the resolution endorsing the Persian Gulf War, and I
felt betrayed” — betrayed! — “by the first Bush administration’s hasty
departure from the battlefield even as Saddam began to renew his persecution of
the Kurds in the north and the Shiites in the south, groups that we had, after
all, encouraged to rise up against Saddam.”
Al Gore on April 18, 1991:
“I want to state this clearly: President Bush should not be blamed for Saddam
Hussein’s survival to this point. There was throughout the war a clear consensus
that the United States should not include the conquest of Iraq among its
objectives. On the contrary, it was universally accepted that our objective was
to push Iraq out of Kuwait, and it was further understood that when this was
accomplished, combat should stop.”
