Glaring error by Bush missed by the august New York Times:
The New York Times
has a story
today, entitled: Bush Backs Away From His Claims About Iraq Arms
, but nowhere in that story is this quote
by the president:
Well, I think the Iraq Survey Group must do its work. Again, I appreciate David Kay's contribution. I said in the run-up to the war against Iraq that -- first of all, I hoped the international community would take care of him. I was hoping the United Nations would enforce its resolutions, one of many. And then we went to the United Nations, of course, and got an overwhelming resolution -- 1441 -- unanimous resolution, that said to Saddam, you must disclose and destroy your weapons programs, which obviously meant the world felt he had such programs. He chose defiance. It was his choice to make, and he did not let us in.
Nobody seems to care - at least at the extremely liberal New York Times
- that Bush is wrong about that. Weapons inspectors were crawling all over the country in early 2003.
Like Mel Brooks said, "It's good to be the king."
