Terry McAuliffe on War & Peace
Democratic nominee for Governor; previously DNC Chair
The same month that Cheney and Rice hit the talk-show circuit to scare the daylights out of the American people, I happened to be over in Spain attending the wedding of Prime Minister Jose Aznar's daughter, Ana. We were joined by Blair and his charming, outspoken wife, Cherie.
Cherie Blair had a question for me. "Terry, what do people in America think of my husband on this issue?," she asked coyly.
I decided what the heck, I'd tell them the truth.
"With all due respect, Mr. Prime Minister, most people think you're a lapdog for George Bush," I said "No offense, sir."
At that point Cherie slapped her husband on the shoulder and said, "See, I told you so, Tony."
The questions, I had on June 17, 2003, speaking in Oklahoma, were: "Where are the weapons of mass destruction?" and "Where is Osama bin Laden?" I'm still asking those questions today--along with millions of other outraged Americans.
The following month, we started getting a clearer picture of just how far Bush had gone to distort reality in his push for war.
Arafat was under pressure from other Arab leaders not to accept a deal just for the sake of a deal, but to fight hard for the best deal possible. Through Clinton's efforts [the Israelis and Palestinians] were also able to resolve most of the territorial and neighborhood issues as well as questions relating to holy sites.
