To the People of...?

Last night, around 6:33 PST, my man said:
"Tonight, let me speak directly to the citizens of IRAN: America respects you, and we respect your country.

We respect your right to choose your own future and win your own freedom.

And our nation hopes one day to be the closest of friends with a free and democratic Iran.

Where have I heard that before?

Oh, yeah:
"And tonight I have a message for the brave and oppressed people of IRAQ: Your enemy is not surrounding your country -- your enemy is ruling your country.

And the day he and his regime are removed from power will be the day of your liberation."
From the SOTU address...January '03.


Found these little gems while I was shopping for the "people of Iraq" quote:
"From three Iraqi defectors we know that Iraq, in the late 1990s, had several mobile biological weapons labs. These are designed to produce germ warfare agents, and can be moved from place to a place to evade inspectors.
Here's the Plamegate bit:
The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production. Saddam Hussein has not credibly explained these activities.

He clearly has much to hide.
The United Nations concluded in 1999 that Saddam Hussein had biological weapons sufficient to produce over 25,000 liters of anthrax -- enough doses to kill several million people. He hasn't accounted for that material. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed it.

The United Nations concluded that Saddam Hussein had materials sufficient to produce more than 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin -- enough to subject millions of people to death by respiratory failure. He hadn't accounted for that material. He's given no evidence that he has destroyed it.

Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent. In such quantities, these chemical agents could also kill untold thousands. He's not accounted for these materials.

He has given no evidence that he has destroyed them."
Are we still looking? That's a lotta chemicals.

That ol '03 speech is chock full of good stuff, people. Google monkeys, unite and take over.

More later...this morning.

I need coffee.
