Condi Rice: Secretary of Revisionist History

When history doesn't look favorably on your track record, the best thing to do is engage in revisionist history. Condoleeza Rice shows us her skills. Either she has a really bad memory or she chooses to distort the historical record. She's too smart for the former to be true. Think Progress exposes her revisionism:

Condoleezza Rice, 11/11/05:

I think that Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction programs were fully expected to be there by everyone who knew anything about the program or knew anything about his history of having used weapons of mass destruction against his own people, his insatiable appetite for them, the UN sanctions against him. And it was not just this Administration that thought that he had weapons of mass destruction and that talked about those weapons of mass destruction. Nobody was willing to give Saddam Hussein the benefit of the doubt.

In fact, Condoleezza Rice was willing to “give Saddam Hussein the benefit of the doubt” in 2001.

Well, in fact, John, we have made progress on the sanctions. … But in terms of Saddam Hussein being there, let’s remember that his country is divided, in effect. He does not control the northern part of his country. We are able to keep arms from him. His military forces have not been rebuilt. [CNN, Late Edition, 7/29/01]

Damn that paper trail.
