George Bush Gives Iraq War Two Thumbs Up
Wahoo! Yesiree, Bob, I'd do it all again.
From a Barbara Walters interview scheduled to air this Friday, George Bush said, "I felt like we'd find weapons of mass destruction — like many here in the United States, many around the world. The United Nations thought he had weapons of mass destruction. So, therefore: one, we need to find out what went wrong in the intelligence gathering. … Saddam was dangerous and the world is safer without him in power."
When asked if the war was worth it even if there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush responded, "Oh, absolutely."
Which made me think of Lord Acton's observation: Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
