Bill Kristol Blames Clinton, Calls Tenet "Crybaby"

fns-kristolsmile.jpg In response to a question on "FOX News Sunday" yesterday about George Tenet's accusation that Bush administration neocons (Cheney, Perle, Feith) were pushing hard for war with Iraq despite Saddam having no links whatsoever to 9/11, Bill Kristol invoked Bill Clinton and said Tenet was not only a "mediocre" DCI, but also a "crybaby."

Of course, comparing Clinton's Iraq policy to Bush's is the height of hilarity. While it's certainly true that Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 that supported regime change, he did not unilaterally invade the country based on false pretense in defiance of world opinion. Nor did he do so in a reckeless manner that exacerbated the terrorist threat worldwide. Nice try, William the Bloody. Just take responsiblity for your misguided war and demented worldview already. Yea that will ever happen. He'll just continue to use his FNC and TIME platforms to lecture everyone on how stupid they are, despite his being wrong about, well, everything.
