  Iraq Liberation Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-338) [1] (codified in a note to 22 USCS § 2151) is an United States Congressional statement of policy calling for regime change in Iraq.
The Act declared that it was the Policy of the United States to support "regime change." The Act was passed in the House [2] and Senate [3] and signed into law by the US President Bill Clinton on October 31, 1998.
This view is supported by the fact that the Act was cited as a basis of support in the Congressional Authorization for use of Military Force Against Iraq in October of 2002 (PUBLIC LAW 107–243—OCT. 16, 2002) [4].

My quarrel with the war was not predicated on the assumption that democracy was not possible for iraq, but rather that I knew it would be executed poorly, was based on lies, and would not achieve this goal.
Further, the point I was making was that you claim that the decision to go into Iraq, somehow became a pressing matter for Bush later in his term when he had been planning to do it all along 9/11 or not.

 Washingtonpost.com: Iraq Special Report
On both occasions, Clinton spoke of the Iraq Liberation Act as but one in a series of steps the administration is pursuing to support political opposition to Saddam Hussein's regime over the long term.
The other initiatives include Radio Free Iraq broadcasts into the country, a recent $8 million appropriation supporting development of opposition groups, and a political truce brokered in September by Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright between the two largest Kurdish opposition groups in northern Iraq.
Part of what makes Clinton's vow to "implement" the Iraq Liberation Act so ambiguous is the act itself, which authorizes the president to provide $97 million in training, weapons, supplies and other materiel to Iraqi opposition groups -- but does not require him to do so.

It was the first time in U.S. history that it became the official foreign policy of the U.S. to overthrow a country that had not attacked the U.S. This Act meant to reward those opposed to Saddam's Iraq, and punish his allies.
What is significant about this Act, is that it was the first step in legitimizing the removal of Saddam.
Three years later, in the resolution authorizing George W. Bush to use military force against Saddam, almost half of the wording from the Iraq Liberation Act was included in the use of force legislation.

That is also the view of "Iraq News." Indeed, as I explained at AEI's Oct 14 conference, "Rethinking the Middle East," a serious misunderstanding regarding the Iraq threat arose in the seven long years since the Gulf war.
We believe that these acts are not isolated, individual incidents, but are part of the relationship between the UNSCOM and some IAEA quarters on the one hand and anti-Iraq quarters on the other.

And while we were received in Iraq as liberators in the days following the collapse of Saddam's army and regime, we did not enjoy the benefit of a close collaboration with the indigenous opposition to his brutal, sadistic dictatorship.
But we did not do it in Iraq, despite the fact that we had a year to organize and prepare for hostilities that brought a hundred and thirty thousand Americans to a place they didn't know or understand.
The occupation of Iraq did much to vitiate the good will we earned--and deserved--as brave Americans risked, and in all too many cases sacrificed, their lives to liberate Iraq.

Of all the terms in the contemporary argument about war with Saddam Hussein, perhaps the most protean and slippery is "regime change." This is not all that surprising when you reflect that it had its origins in those heavily parsed years that we can never quite bring ourselves to call the Clinton era.
The words became current during the debate over the passage of the Iraq Liberation Act, which was sponsored by Sens.
The Iraq Liberation Act did not involve paying Frank Luntz or Dick Morris to see what the "numbers" would be for the new third party Shiite Centrist Coalition, as it attempted to bridge the gender gap in the swing-state Basra region.

In 1998 the US Congress passed the ILA, whose operative part (Section 3) reads: "It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."
To that end the ILA provided US$97 million worth of assistance, including money for radio and television broadcasting to Iraq by opposition groups to military education and training.
Since the ILA became law, only about $5 million of the $97 million in "drawdown" authority to the Pentagon has been authorized, and only a fraction of the authorized amount has actually been spent.
