Bill Clinton is continuing his global “Look at Me” tour and decided to weigh in on American foreign policy… and naturally, he did it on foreign soil… again.
Speaking to students at the American University of Dubai, Clinton said: “It was a big mistake. The American government made several errors … one of which is how easy it would be to get rid of Saddam and how hard it would be to unite the country.”
When Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, he said:
“The United States favors an Iraq that offers its people freedom at home. I categorically reject arguments that this is unattainable due to Iraq’s history or its ethnic or sectarian make-up.”
He also said:
“The evidence is overwhelming that such changes will not happen under the current Iraq leadership.
So if he’s now saying that the American government made errors in judging the ability to offer freedom to Iraqis based on the division of its population, he’s tossing out his very own justification for attacking Iraq in 1998… thus one can only infer that he had other motives for attacking Iraq back then…
