But it’s not our fault! January 27, 2003

Who gave Saddam Hussein his weapons?

The United States of America … so say the San Francisco Chronicle and The Washington Post.

From a White House press briefing with White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, Monday, January 27, 2003 – 12:00 PM, by Russell Mokhiber:


Mokhiber: … You and the President have repeatedly said one of the reasons Saddam is part of the axis of evil is because he’s gassed his own people. Well, he gassed his own people with our help. You saw the Washington Post article, didn’t you, by Michael Dobbs?

Ari Fleischer: I think that statement is not borne out by the facts.

Mokhiber: Did you see the Post article by Dobbs?

Ari Fleischer: I think that he gassed his own people as a result of his decisions to use his weapons to gas his own people.

Mokhiber: But who gave him the weapons?

Ari Fleischer: And I think the suggestion that you blame America for Iraq’s actions is way beyond the pale.

Mokhiber: Who gave him the weapons?

(Ari moves on.)


Had enough yet?
