Gore Calls For War! 15 Years Ago!

It's that same, tired old inflammatory rhetoric... a vast terrorist threat, the use of chemical weapons, weapons of mass destruction, demanding the overthrow of a ruthless dictator... those craven neo-cons! But wait... no... that's not Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, or George W. Bush.

It's... Al Gore from 1992!

Gore Fearmongering... about Terrorism!

This is so damning... not simply for Gore's about face, but for the way it illustrates his political tactics - hyper-inflating issues when they are politically advantageous.

Yet more Gore decrying Bush I's inaction when dealing with terrorist states:

Update: ThinkProgress and The Carpetbagger Report "set conservative bloggers straight" (i.e., apologize, explain away for Gore - and they do a poor job of it).
