NM-01: Wilson Lies for George Bush, Again!

Cross posted at the Madrid for Congress blog...

In this morning's ABQJournal, Wilson said:

"The intelligence that caused me to vote in favor of authorizing the use of force was not Saddam's nuclear program, but his biological program," Wilson said in the written statement this week.

That's a lie. On March 8, 2003, on the eve of war, Wilson told the Albuquerque Tribune that it wasn't just biological weapons - that it was also Saddam's chemical weapons and his desire to obtain nuclear weapons that caused her to vote in favor of going to war with Iraq. Wilson:

"For me," (Wilson) said, "the action against Iraq has to do with chemical and biological weapons and Saddam Hussein's desire to get nuclear weapons. We can't let him have those weapons."

Rep. Wilson, it's time to be honest with New Mexicans. You've supported Bush's war from the beginning. You've never asked the tough questions about what got us into the war in Iraq. And, now, you're continuing to flip flop on why you voted for this disastrous war in the first place. Rep. Wilson, New Mexicans deserve the truth - and, it's time you gave it to them.
