This Day In History -- January 27, 1998

Two Clinton lies for the price of one.

First, Hillary Clinton.

Matt Lauer: "You have said, I understand, to some close friends, that this is the last great battle, and that one side or the other is going down here."

Hillary Clinton: "Well, I don't know if I've been that dramatic. That would sound like a good line from a movie. But I do believe that this is a battle. I mean, look at the very people who are involved in this they have popped up in other settings. This is the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president."

Of course we now know that the only conspiracy out there was one by the Clintons to lie their way out of Bill Clinton's infidelity and perjury, and to recast anyone who was concerned about the integrity of the presidency and the judicial process as involved in a conspiracy to bring down her husband (who had a government employee going down on him on government time).

And then that evening we got this lie from her husband during the State of the Union Address.

Together, we must confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons and the outlaw states, terrorists, and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade and much of his nation's wealth not on providing for the Iraqi people but on developing nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. The United Nations weapons inspectors have done a truly remarkable job finding and destroying more of Iraq's arsenal than was destroyed during the entire Gulf war. Now Saddam Hussein wants to stop them from completing their mission.

I know I speak for everyone in this chamber, Republicans and Democrats, when I say to Saddam Hussein, "You cannot defy the will of the world," and when I say to him, "You have used weapons of mass destruction before. We are determined to deny you the capacity to use them again."

President Bill Clinton
January 27, 1998

Wait -- you mean that wasn't a lie? But I thought it was a lie -- after all, Democrats (including both Clintons) have accused George W. Bush of "lying the nation into war" for using the same intelligence (and more) to reach the same conclusion as Bill Clinton had reached five years before. That means that we are stuck with the conclusion that Bill Clinton was lying to us in 1998 -- or that the Clintons and other Democrats are lying to us now for partisan advantage, damage to our national security and trust in the institutions of government be damned. You decide -- and realize that either way you have to conclude that Bill Clinton is a liar.

But we already knew that.
