Wait… What did he just say?

Yesterday, our exiting President said this in his final press conference:

“Not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment.”

No… No, wait a minute. Actually, had Iraq *had any* WMD, that would have been the disappointment. When rogue states don’t have WMD, that is a significant pleasant thing. In fact, it is a very good thing that Iraq had no WMD. Because they might have used them!

I think what Bush means to say is that he was disappointed that his intelligence was wrong about the WMD, thus he sent us into a very long, expensive, and bloody war over smoke and mirrors from an intelligence department that was, at best, mismanaged at the highest levels, and, at worse, intentionally skewed to enrich the big businesses that have profited from these wars.

But, that’s not what he said, now, is it?

I wonder how many “misspoken” things must come out of a man’s mouth before people start to wonder what is really going on in his head

Could you imagine the insanity of existing in a state of mind where one wished Saddam Hussein actually had a hand hovering over the big, red button?

  1. I agree. While it is a shame that he got us into this mess because he thought they had them, it is nice to know that Saddam didn’t have them. Of course, if he’d actually waited for GOOD intelligence in the first place instead of rushing it, there would be 4,000 US soldiers alive today. Seems like a really cheap thing for him to say, that he’s upset Saddam didn’t have the weapons just because it makes him look bad–as if it’s difficult or rare to make him look bad. What an ass. I hope all the horrible stuff he’s done that we don’t know about yet comes to light before he kicks the bucket so we can hold him accountable for it….
