Rice Denies Book's Claim on Iraq Decision
By WILLIAM C. MANN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - National security adviser Condoleezza Rice forcefully disputed on Sunday an assertion that President Bush decided in early January 2003 to invade Iraq three months before official accounts say the decision was made.


The statement, in Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward's new book about the run-up to war, is "simply not, not right," Rice said.


Bush said at a prime-time news conference on March 6 that a U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing action was days away. Ten days later, having failed to win approval, the resolution was withdrawn, and the assault began March 20.


Rice did not deny the private conversation between her and Bush just after New Year's Day in which Woodward said the decision was made, but she said the writer had misinterpreted what was said.

1. Now what about the famous Time article
where Bush says "Fuck Sadaam, we're taking him out" in MARCH of 2002?
How can that self-serving slut reconcile that one?

3. Rice has ZERO credibility
In another thread she said that Powell and Cheney are more than speaking, they are friendly. Yeah, right. She is the biggest liar I can EVER remember being in public office.
