Whose Administration?

From USA Today, on the recent Iraq poll:
For the first time, a majority of Americans, 51%, say the Bush administration deliberately misled the public about whether Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction — the reason Bush emphasized in making the case for invading. The administration's credibility on the issue has been steadily eroding since 2003.
But not the Clinton Administration? Was it the Bush Administration that prompted Congress to pass the Iraqi Liberation Act, affirming Iraq's WMD noncompliance, in 1998?

It's interesting to me to note the frustration of the media with this poll. They are pleased to report people don't trust Bush and think we're going to lose--but dammit, too many don't think Iraq was a mistake! The yellow press has a mighty row to hoe.
