Bush says US is in Iraq because of attacks on US - Yahoo! News

President George W. Bush defended the war in Iraq, telling Americans the United States was forced into war because of the September 11 terror strikes.

Wow! Now I know that most Americans don't read much and probably a lot of them do read haven't read the 09/11 commission report, and a lot of people probably aren't aware of what is in it, but Jesus Christ, you'd think the President would at least assume that some people might have paid a little bit of attention. Enough at least to get the word out to everyone else, so that at the very least he can't say incredibly stupid, insulting things like this.

That's right, it's insulting. When Bush says something like this, what he is really saying is that the American people are stupid. That he can do what he wants and say what he wants and get away with it simply because not enough people are paying attention. The saddest part is that he might be right.
