Nope, sorry, doesn't cut it . . . .
[President Bush, on Meet the Press] On the death and injury toll in Iraq: "It's essential that I explain this properly to the parents of those who lost their lives. Saddam Hussein was dangerous, and I'm not going to leave him in power and trust a madman. He's a dangerous man. He had the ability to make weapons at the very minimum. For the parents of the soldiers who have fallen who are listening, David Kay, the weapons inspector, came back and said, 'In many ways Iraq was more dangerous than we thought.' It's -- we are in a war against these terrorists who will bring great harm to America, and I've asked these young ones to sacrifice for that."
