Let's Let Nothing Get Mixed Up About This

CNN.com - Bush defends Iraq war in TV interview - Feb. 8, 2004

OK, once again Bush is attempting to use the Reality Denial technique...

"Saddam Hussein was dangerous, and I'm not just going to leave him in power and trust a madman," Bush said in a taped interview that aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "He's a dangerous man. He had the ability to make weapons at the very minimum."

He did not.

Let me repeat that: Saddam did not have the capabilities to make him "dangerous".

David Kay has expicitly said that we were wrong, that intelligence has shown that the primary rationale for going to war was faulty.

If there were other reason -- they should have been emphasized. Instead, WMD was used as the primary -- if not only -- reason.

Besides, we have this quote from George during the 2000 debates:

The other day, I was honored to be flanked by Colin Powell and General Norman Schwarzkopf, who stood by my side and agreed with me.

They said we could, even though we're the strongest military, that if we don't do something quickly, we don't have a clearer vision of the military, if we don't stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we're going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I'm going to prevent that. I'm going to rebuild our military power. It's one of the major priorities of my administration.

Please, get this guy outta here. He doesn't even know what he's saying.
