Dubya-speak

“The fundamental question is, did Saddam Hussein have a weapons program? And the answer is, absolutely. And we gave him a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn’t let them in. And, therefore, after a reasonable request, we decided to remove him from power,” explains George W Bush, speaking to reporters on Monday.

Hmmm, let me see if I understand you correctly, Mr President. You now say that you started the war with Iraq because Saddam refused to let the UN weapons inspectors in?

Salon’s Joe Consanon wonders why this astonishing statement was hardly reported by the American media. Me too, Joe.
