Clinton Claims Bush Plagiarized ’98 Speech
Former President Bill Clinton today charged the Bush administration with “plagiarism of ideas” and offered as evidence a 1998 speech Mr. Clinton made to explain his order to bomb Iraq.
“If you read the text of my speech, you’ll see that President Bush lifted practically all of my reasons for attacking Iraq and used them as his own,” said Mr. Clinton. “I was the one who said Saddam Hussein must be stopped before he used chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. If you read the papers today, you might think that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld just made that up out of whole cloth.”
Mr. Clinton indicated his willingness to graciously receive an apology and overdue royalty payments from Mr. Bush.
