I’ve been trying to pull together a list of people that should also be accused of lying to the American people if you’re one who insists that Bush and Blair did so when they talked about Iraqi WMDs. Just like the 9/11 intelligence question, if you want to accuse Bush of lying, there’s also a laundry list of folks who’d have to be part of that conspiracy, starting with Bill Clinton (who also said they had WMDs) and the UN (who’s resolution 1441 started from the assumption that they existed). However, making my job easier, the inimitable Instapundit has compiled a number of posts from all over that point out that show the list of those who said Hussein was harboring WMDs is quite long indeed. They include the aforementioned, plus:

  • Hans Blix
  • German intelligence
  • Jacques Chirac
  • Al Gore

The “peace” marchers are all over Bush on this (as they were recently here in Atlanta), but once again their hands are tight over their ears, not wanting to believe anything’s wrong with their crowd, but jumping on every single shred of possibility that Bush is Hitler, regardless of how baseless each of those shreds are, and regardless of how they’ve looked the other way prior to Dubya’s inauguration. As Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds says, “Well, it’s better than admitting that if you’d had your way, Saddam Hussein would still be shoveling children into mass graves, I suppose.”
