Did Hillary Just Say Bill Clinton Lied Intentionally?

CNN goes out of its way to insist that Hillary was okay voting for war on Iraq while maintaining she is not responsible for continuing struggles there. The subtleties of left-wing double speak continue to amaze. But how could even CNN miss this nugget?

Clinton had the same information on Iraq that Bush had ... since it was under the Clinton administration that it was compiled. And Clinton referenced that intelligence information when he attacked Iraq in 1998 and on. In 2002 Germany also said Iraq would have a nuclear weapon by 2004 ... their justification ( fear ) that sanctions should be lifted.

But on "Larry King Live" Hillary said:

"The consensus was the same, from the Clinton administration to the Bush administration," she said. "It was the same intelligence belief that our allies and friends around the world shared.
"But I think that in the case of the [Bush] administration, they really believed it. They really thought they were right, but they didn't let enough sunlight into their thinking process to really have the kind of debate that needs to take place when a serious decision occurs like that."

So Clinton was lying when he said it was true about the weapons Saddam had? Since he didn't "really" believe it the way Bush did?
