Jimmy... call your office...

Generation Why (H/T Instapundit) has pulled some quotes from good ol' Jimmy Carter (Jimmy Carter? He is history's greatest monster!) on Saddam's WMD programs.

It seems that Jimmy was all for using intelligence that Saddam had WMD if he could use it for a reason to not go to war.

November 2, 2005
"The Bush Administration's prewar claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction were manipulated, at least to mislead the American people."

February 18, 2003
"We want Saddam Hussein to disarm but we want to achieve this through peaceful means. He obviously has the capability and desire to build prohibited weapons and probably has some hidden in his country."

This exposes the true motive for the left's recent talking points on investigating pre-war intelligence. It's not about "finding the lies" its about turning American victories (the toppling of Saddam) against the President. In essense turning victory into defeat.

They were all for WMD's being in Iraq if it meant we would be too scared to go into Baghdad. If I were on the Senate Intelligence Committee, I'd subpeona Jimmy Carter, since he obviously thought there were WMD's in Iraq as well.
