This is an admission worthy of historic significance. This blog has vehemently insisted in the past 2 years that Bush admit that the intelligence used to build the case to invade Iraq was all wrong. Years went by with Bush defending, sidestepping, twisting, ignoring, and insisting that the intelligence was correct. It was vital for this President to avoid any “bad press” in order to attain his second term in office. Bush would have risked his re-election had he admitted earlier that the intelligence was wrong.
I battled for 2 and a half years with emotional, passionate and brainwashed patriotic Americans on this issue, and every single one of them was convinced that the evidence was conclusive and Saddam was an imminent threat to the United States.
I’d love to hear what they have to say now, after their god, their Commander in Chief, the cowboy himself has admitted that much of the intelligence that led the United States to war turned out to be wrong.
I’m not the type of person that would say “I told you so”, because that wouldn’t be respectful. Wait, I am the type of person that would say I told you so. I told you so. This is perfect timing for Bush to admit he was wrong after he’s already won his second term in office and after the war has progressed beyond the point of no return.
