Republican Presidential Hopeful Bob Dole has been cautiously critical of President Clinton’s military action against Iraq. Dole has expressed his support for American soldiers carrying out the mission, but he also declared that President Clinton had precipitated the current Iraq crisis by appeasing the butcher of Baghdad. But Michael Daly, a columnist for the New York Daily News says Dole has a long history of appeasing Saddam. In a column this week, Daly tells the amazing and true story of a meeting between Bob Dole and Saddam Hussein.
