This sort of thing really doesn’t fill me with confidence:
I think the intelligence I get is darn good intelligence. And the speeches I have given were backed by good intelligence.
And I am absolutely convinced today, like I was convinced when I gave the speeches, that Saddam Hussein developed a program of weapons of mass destruction and that our country made the right decision.
Wasn’t it, oh I don’t know… yesterday that we learned that the
scapegoat CIA provided some erroneous information about Iraq’s supposed nuclear weapons program? Didn’t that bring the whole ball o’ wax into doubt, and begin to justify the fears and arguments of tree-hugging liberals like myself both here and abroad? I thought it did.
Whatever happened to ‘Don’t shoot ’till you see the whites of their eyes’? Obviously it was replaced with the more popular, ‘Shoot first, ask questions later’.
