During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn) continued to insist that Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction even though none were ever found after the invasion of Iraq.
The senator, retiring his seat in 2012, also said that despite the enormous cost to the U.S. in blood, prestige and treasure he does not regret his vote for war and would do it all over again.
This was an astounding appearance. Lieberman insisted the “most official and comprehensive report” proved Saddam Hussein was developing WMD, and that the regime was “beginning really tactically to support the terrorist movements that had attacked us on 9/11 and today.”
As part of the same MSNBC segment, Arianna Huffington asked Lieberman to substantiate his claim about Saddam Hussein was working on weapons of mass destruction, a claim even George W. Bush abandoned. The senator replied, “I’m basing it on the so-called Duelfer Report. Charles D-U-E-L-F-E-R conducted the most comprehensive report on behalf of our government.”
When Huffington said there’s nothing in the Duelfer Report to bolster Lieberman’s conclusions, the senator replied, “I don’t think you’ve read it, sweetheart.”
How would Senator LIE-berman do at calling college football games for Bristol, CT-based ESPN, sweet baby?
