    I am one who backed going into Iraq to punish Saddam for violating terms of cessation of hostilities ...Gulf War.

    nowhere did that idea back destroying Iraq's infrastructure and nation building. So I am no anti war leftie.

    Nowhere did I hear of using the Iraq Liberation Act as a justification for invasion...until after the invasion. I hear it as a ccover for ignorant right wingers to say Clinton started tyhe road to invasion..and more nonsense.

    not much about authorizing invasion.

    Urges the President to call upon the United Nations to establish an international criminal tribunal for the purpose of indicting, prosecuting, and imprisoning Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi officials who are responsible for crimes against humanity, genocide, and other criminal violations of international law.

    hmmmm, where is the part the right wing says is there..where Clinton advocates invasion?

    and these are the words of a GOP led congress? War crimes and internation laws used against a Head of State?

    H.R. 4655 - Iraq Liberation Act of 1998
