No Need for [a] Reason

“Let me talk about the intelligence in Iraq. First of all, we all thought we’d find stockpiles of weapons. We may still find weapons. We haven’t found them yet. Every person standing up here would say, 'Gosh, we thought it was going to be different.; As did congress, by the way. Member of both parties. And the United Nations. But what we do know is that Saddam Hussein had the capability of making weapons. And ... umm … but let me just say this to you. Knowing what I know today, we still would have gone on into Iraq. We still would have gone to make our country more secure. He had the capability of making weapons. He had terrorist ties. The decision I made was the right decision. The world is better off without Saddam Hussein in power.”

--George W. Bush, August 2nd 2004, from Talking Points Memo.

Apparently, Cheney isn't the only one to offer big F@#$ yous. F@#$ you, America, so what if everything I said turned out to be untrue. We'd have still gone. You didn't need a reason then, you don't need one now.

Saying doesn't make it so, Mr. President.
