540. 9/29/1992

Vice presidential candidate Al Gore “attacked President [George H.W.] Bush for not taking the threat posed by Saddam Hussein seriously enough. Iraq, he said [on September 29, 1992], was a well-known state sponsor of terror. Gore lamented that the Iraqi ‘tyrant remains firmly in power, resisting by every means the will of the international community,’ and accused the Bush administration of ‘a blatant disregard for brutal terrorism, a dangerous blindness to the murderous ambitions of a despot.’ ”
