Transcript of bush and King Abdullah
Edited on Thu May-06-04 03:09 PM by maddezmom

We also talked about what has been on the TV screens recently, not only in our own country, but overseas -- the images of cruelty and humiliation. I told His Majesty as plainly as I could that the wrongdoers will be brought to justice, and that the actions of those folks in Iraq do not represent the values of the United States of America.

I told him I was sorry for the humiliation suffered by the Iraqi prisoners, and the humiliation suffered by their families. I told him I was equally sorry that people who have been seeing those pictures didn't understand the true nature and heart of America. I assured him Americans, like me, didn't appreciate what we saw, that it made us sick to our stomachs. I also made it clear to His Majesty that the troops we have in Iraq, who are there for security and peace and freedom, are the finest of the fine, fantastic United States citizens, who represent the very best qualities of America: courage, love of freedom, compassion, and decency.

Your Majesty, I'm proud you're here. I appreciate you coming. Jordan is a friend of the United States, and friends look out for one another. I understand your country and your people have important interests at stake in the Middle East; your country has important interests at stake when it comes to a Palestinian- Israeli peace agreement; you've got important interests in the emergence of a new Iraq. I assure you my government views Jordan's security and prosperity and territorial integrity as vital. We will oppose any developments in the region that might endanger your interests.

I look forward to working closely with you to achieve peace and freedom. We'll work with you to assist you in your historic efforts to lead Jordan to greater peace and freedom and prosperity.

1. Thank you for posting that link.
I missed it and I know I'll see bits and pieces, but I wanted to be able to read the whole thing.

3. King Abdullah
King Abdullah's use and command of the English language made Bush look like a fucking idiot.

What else is new?

Bush is a pull string doll and keeps repeating the same jargon. That's his job. Between Cheney and his 300 odd joy guns and Haliburton love affair pulling the string and the rest of the rats scurrying for their lobbyists, one man from a country which is not even a fucking democracy, made Bush sound like goat story teller.

Strange... though I respect Abdullah, he is still a king. Then again, what is George then? Any different? Not with his new powers.

4. He's STILL not sorry "we" DID anything.
He's sorry "they" suffered humiliation.
All this passive voice pussy-footing.
The man drives me to distraction.

6. When the Hell did chimpy* see the report?
Q Mr. President, if this problem at the prisons was first noticed late last year, why has it taken this long for actions to be taken? And what did you tell Secretary Rumsfeld yesterday?

PRESIDENT BUSH: I tell him I should have known about the pictures and the report. And as I understand it, the -- General Kimmitt declared to the press corps, in Iraq I believe it was, that there was an ongoing investigation. In other words, he made it clear. The Army said, we've discovered something, we've discovered an issue, and, therefore, we're now going to investigate it. It was a declaration to -- to the world that there was an issue, and then there is a process.


General Pace said both he and General Myers saw the report back in January. wtf?
