Question of the Day

From yesterday's White House press briefing:
Q As a follow-up on my colleagues over here, do you think that if this was March 1, 2003, and the 9/11 report had come out, and we knew that there were no weapons of mass destruction, do you think the American people would have supported us going to war?

MR. McCLELLAN: That's a complete hypothetical.
The Bush administration blocked the creation of the 9/11 commission for over a year, without which their report (or at the least the interim reports like we're seeing now) might well have been released by March 1, 2003. The Bush administration also told the UN inspectors to leave Iraq, when with a few more months and a lot less bloodshed, they could have arrived at the same conclusion that David Kay did this past January--no WMD's. So that it's a complete hypothetical is entirely the fault of the Bush administration.
