Hillary Calls Bush Incompetent… Says She Did Not Vote For War(?)
Although, her husband lost more soldiers each year on average than the US is losing in the Iraq War…
Hillary called the Bush war plan incompetent today.
During the Clinton years, the US military lost an average of 939 soldiers each year. During the War in Iraq the US has lost an average of 800 soldiers each year- down each of the last two years!
These results were taken from Iraq Coalition Casualties, and Murdoc Online – the Official Department of Defense Report.
Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday called U.S. President George W. Bush’s policy in Iraq incompetent but came under pressure to explain her own vote to authorize the war.
“If you had been so obsessed with doing this, why were you so incompetent in carrying it out?” the New York senator said of Bush on her first political visit in a decade to New Hampshire, the state that helps kick off the White House race.
“I gave him the authority to send inspectors back in to determine the truth. I said this is not a vote to authorize pre-emptive war,” she said in answer to a question from one of about 250 voters crammed into Berlin’s city hall in New Hampshire’s frozen north.
“In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
