From the BBC:
Bush bemoans 'flawed' Iraq data

President George W Bush has said he was disappointed in "flawed intelligence" in the run-up to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Mr Bush said analysis of the material by many intelligence agencies had led to the "wrong conclusion" on weapons of mass destruction.

In an interview with internet portal Yahoo and newspaper Politico, he also explained why he had given up golf.

"I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal," he said.



Flawed intelligence? You're the one who cherry picked the intelligence despite the efforts of Ambassador Wilson and his wife Vallerie Plame! You planned this, you wanted this to get even for 'your daddy', you are a lying sack of shit!

As to your other comments, allow me to retort:

Global warming: "I could have supported a lousy treaty and everybody would have went, 'Oh, man, what a wonderful sounding fellow he is'. But it just wouldn't have worked." Yeah, like that pesky International Criminal Court Treaty that you 'unsigned... Can't have any sign of accountability, can we...

Democrat-led Congress: "I would call them, so far, good at verbiage and not so good at results." Sure, you much preferred the rubber stamp Congress you had before 2006. I admit I would have preferred they had moved to impeach this president, but the reality is they did not have the votes to convict him.

Burma: "It's taken these people too long to move. It's almost as if they're in a state of denial." One word: Katrina.

His legacy: "I think history, when they look back, will say this is a fellow who knew how to make decisions, and made some tough ones, stood by them, wasn't driven by the latest opinion poll, but was driven by some core principles from which he would not deviate." Your legacy? WORST PRESIDENT EVER!

Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq
Here's the Juicy bits. )

Now, it can be argued that this is primarily geared to those committing acts of 'violence' that undermine the efforts in Iraq. Of course, if there are acts of violence at a peaceful demonstration, could this order be invoked against the people who organized and/or participated?

Dangerous stuff and written in legalese that insured there is enough wiggle room to make it sound reasonable.

And I don't trust these bastards at all.

I watched this with my wife and our response was "Oh Daymn!!!"

My favorite quote: "During your term you have lost... ...four airliners, two trade centers and the City of New Orleans. What's the matter, not lucky?!?"
