"It was studied and analyzed by the President"
Imagine bush analyzing anything. rumsfeld today lying about troop strength questions before the war. He said that field commanders and there bosses decided on the level of troops to go into Iraq. I guess he's never heard of the senior Army Officer at the time, General Shinseki who said that at least twice as many troops would be needed. Then the four star Army General(O-10), Army Chief of Staff was fired by george bush who couldn't even promote to O-3 in the Reserves. "Conservatives" will whine that he wasn't fired but retired as planned. He was shitcanned and ignored by ignorant and evil PNAC bastards.

Not that it matters, but was the motherfucker under oath this AM?

2. Haha--that's a good one, Rummy
My idea of what happens is this: several of his lackeys propose ideas to *, and he checks his gut and picks one. No analysis of facts or anything difficult like that. Unfortunately, the lackeys don't propose anything too objectionable, because if they did they'd soon find themselves cut out of access.

7. I'm sorry
He absolutely disgusts me.

I hope he contracts a very painful disease and dies a slow, excruciating death.

Murder is that man's middle name.

6. "We never had the slightest inkling there was anything wrong..."
"...with the intelligence."

Okay, this is a bit off-topic, but it's Junior's most telling statement about the scrubbing of any mitigation to the chicken little fears about Iraq's danger to us. It's also a clear-cut lie, since he knew of the qualifiers.

Back on topic: "cursory" is much more in depth than this vengeful little nobody ever gets; George W. Bush is lazy, vindictive and greedy to the bone.

8. Nothing has changed. Did you read this article last weekend?
It quoted several officers and defense officials saying that even now, there's an "understanding" that any officer who asks for more troops will soon find himself out of a job.

10. The only thing * analyzes very well is a baseball boxscore.
Maybe I'm giving him too much credit.
