Bush Defends Decisions on Iraq War
By TERENCE HUNT, AP White House Correspondent 5 minutes ago
President Bush said Tuesday the decision about when to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq will fall to future presidents and Iraqi leaders, suggesting that U.S. involvement will continue at least through 2008.
Acknowledging the public's growing unease with the war — and election-year skittishness among fellow Republicans — the president nonetheless vowed to keep U.S. soliders in the fight.
"If I didn't believe we could suceeed, I wouldn't be there. I wouldn't put those kids there," Bush declared.
He also stood by embattled Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld.
"I don't believe he should resign. He's done a fine job. Every war plan looks good on paper until you meet the enemy," he said.
In his second-full blown news conference of the year, Bush confronted his political problems by addressing them directly.
"Nobody likes war. It creates a sense of uncertainty in the country," he said. "War creates trauma."
The public's support for the war and the president himself has declined dramatically in recent months, jeopardizing his second-term agenda. "I'd say I'm spending that capital on the war," Bush said when asked about the political capital he carried out of the 2004 re-electon campaign.
When asked about his failed Social Security plan, Bush simply said: "I didn't get done." But he defiantly defended his warrantless eavesdropping program, and baited Democrats who suggest that he broke the law.
Calling a censure resolution "needless partisanship," Bush challenged Democrats to go into the November midterm elections in oppostion to eavesdropping on suspected terrorists. "They ought to stand up and say, `The tools we're using to protect the American peopel should not be used,'" Bush said.
Bush said Islamofascist. which means he's a lazy fucking thinker. The president of the United State uses a made up word from hacks who don't know Mecca from a Masarati. I was stunned he would use such a loaded and offensive word myself. But watching him,'you wonder when Army Group Steiner is going to arrive
And Bush's illegal spying program is a summer away from being ripped apart by the courts.
Bet he can't name one terrorist jailed because of his law breaking.
