Guess who said this:
“We know we can’t count on the French. We know we can’t count on the Russians,” said Mr. Guess-Who “We know that Iraq is a danger to the United States, and we reserve the right to take pre-emptive action whenever we feel it’s in our national interest.”
Go ahead guess!
Bwaa ha ha ha!

(Update: The quote is looking increasingly dodgy. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be so much a quote as a creative reconstruction. It is sort of like what the press does to Rumsfield all the time. *Sigh* It was just to funny to doublecheck.)

No, I saw a replay on Oreilly factor last night where Bill interviewed Kerry on 12/11/01. He more or less said the same thing – ie we reserve right to pre-emptive strike, Saddam has been violating resolutions, U.S. reserve right to act unilaterally, etc etc. Really something.

Yeah, that’s what Dan Rather said too…another reason to prefer blogging….
