SEN. BOXER: Well, you should read what we voted on when we voted to support the war, which I did not, but most of my colleagues did. It was WMD, period. That was the reason and the causation for that, you know, particular vote.

THIS IS A DIRECT QUOTE FROM THE TRANSCRIPT OF BOXER'S EXCHANGE WITH CONDI [emp[haisi added]:
(1) Boxer ESSENTIALLY admits she never read the Bill. If she did, she'd know that Congress authorized the war against Saddam based on Saddam's failure to fulfil all of his obligations of ALL the UNSCR's. These UNSCR's were NOT just limited to WMD's, or even WMD's stockpiles; in fact, the word stockpile appears ONLY ONCE in the entire body of UNSCR's; in fact, when referring to WMD's - or WMD programs, the UNSCR's most frequently use the phrase "any and all" or "any capability." (More HERE.)
(2) See below post "Truth Exposed" - or click HERE - for other LIES that Boxer and the Left are still trying to foist on the public, (with the explicit cooperation of the Old Media).
UPDATE: an astute reader pointed out that in my quote from Boxer perhaps she was denying she'd voted for the bill, and not denying that she'd read the bill (as she implied Condi hadn't ever read it, as in: "...you should read the bill we voted on..."). MY POINT STILL STANDS: if Boxer read the bill (which she accuses Condi of failing to do), than she DID NOT UNDERSTAND IT AT ALL!
UPDATE: CRUSHKERRY ON THE CASE, (hat tips to INSTAPUNDIT AND POLIPUNDIT).
