Stop what you’re doing

And tell me who it was who uttered these remarkable words:

And the question in my mind is how many additional American casualties is Saddam worth? And the answer is not very damned many. So I think we got it right, both when we decided to expel him from Kuwait, but also when the president made the decision that we’d achieved our objectives and we were not going to go get bogged down in the problems of trying to take over and govern Iraq… All of a sudden you’ve got a battle you’re fighting in a major built-up city, a lot of civilians are around, significant limitations on our ability to use our most effective technologies and techniques. Once we had rounded him up and gotten rid of his government, then the question is what do you put in its place? You know, you then have accepted the responsibility for governing Iraq.

Was it John Kerry? Colin Powell? Sorry, but the answer is….Dick Cheney, the man who architected our McWar on Iraq! The man who helped make us think it was practical and necessary and easily doable. He of the famous flowers-and-chocolates myth. He who, when others raised similar points in 2003, sneered at them and called them weasels!

As my source says, “If John Edwards doesn’t use this in the debates, he’s nuts.”
