Right On Iraq

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!

Give up?

Bwaa ha ha ha!

Jeez, I just laughed so hard I schadenfreuded my britches!

(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.)

  1. Careful, gents – there is some doubt (lots of doubt, actually) over whether the Wash Times ran an exact quote, or a paraphrase provided by King.

    This was kicked around the blogosphere last spring – here is my old post with both excerpts and a transcript.

    I have some current thoughts on this here.

    Powerline is similarly puzzled, BTW.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. 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.
