Elephants never forget, so let’s remind Hillary Clinton of her past positions on Iraq and cure her memory loss.
On October 11, 2002, she cast her vote supporting the President’s resolution to go to war. She said her vote was cast with the “conviction” that the war authorization “best serves the security of our nation.”
Hillary also said that she rejected setting a timetable to withdraw from Iraq. Her exact words:
“I reject a rigid timetable that the terrorists can exploit, and I reject an open timetable that has no ending attached to it.” (Associated Press, 12/3/05)
You can watch the video of these statements by clicking here.
But in recent months and days, Hillary has voted against providing funds to support our troops and their safety. The legislation she voted against provided $1.6 billion for body armor, $2.4 billion to help combat IEDs, and $3 billion for mine resistant vehicles.
And now she is saying that “this is not our fight.” She wants to withdraw.
The President and the Republican Party will not forget our commitment to protecting Americans at home and abroad. Neither should Hillary Clinton. Remind her of her past positions and her support of our troops by contacting her here:
