Why are some politicians censored for unethical acts such as lying to the public and others are not?

The original question equated the lies of Clinton with the claims of WMD's. The answer to such a partisain comment seems evident. Clinton lied to protect his image and to cover up his actions that took place in the oval office. On the other hand, the question of Sadam's WMD's has actually been answered. First, Sadam claimed to have them and threatened to use them against U.S. forces. That fact is documented and part of the media transcript. Second, nerve agent and delivery systems have been found in sufficient quantity to be considered WMD's, even though such information has not particularly been of the Democrat supporting media's interest to report. Third, the intelligence community had been destroyed by policy for almost 8 years prior to the current administration. As such, the intelligence community had not been able to recover by the time there was a requirement to find out if, in fact, Sadam had WMD's. The intelligence community was required to make a recommendation and were forced to rely on the claims of Sadam and the reports from intelligence agencies around the world. It is quite shallow for someone to make the claim that the two are anywhere near equal. If they had attempted to impeach Bush, some of the following quotes would have certainly have been brought up by the defense: *"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." - President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998 *"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." - President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998 *"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 *"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 *"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002 *"We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction." - Madeline Albright, Feb 1, 1998 *"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." - Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999 *"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983." - Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998 *"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." - Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998 *"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them." - Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002 *"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002 See the Related Link for "What Did The Democrats Say About Iraq's WMD" to the right for even more quotes from Democrats who said Iraq had WMD before Bush did.
