More Hadley

Hadley:: "Some of the critics today believed themselves in 2002 that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. They stated that belief and they voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq because they believed Saddam Hussein posed a dangerous threat to the American people. For those critics to ignore their own past statements exposes the hollowness of their current attacks."

Those who Hadley describes as having "voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq", according to the text of the resolution, actually voted for the use of diplomacy toward the end of continued monitoring of Iraq's military programs, only authorizing the use of force as a last resort in the event of failed diplomacy. Conveniently for Hadley & Bush's White House, it is almost always true that if you pub no effort into diplomacy, you will fail at it.
