Step Into President Bush's Bizarre World
Despite appearing uncomfortable for the entire 20-minute interview, President Bush gave Katie Couric some interesting insight into his thinking in Wednesday's exclusive sit down:
Full Interview: Part 1 & Part 2
Some quotes and thoughts:
BUSH: There – it's – you know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror. I believe it. As I told you, Osama bin Laden believes it.
Since the Senate Intelligence Committe just debunked that connection, will the President now "adjust" to the "facts on the ground"?
BUSH: [...]And – let me repeat to you what I said about Hitler, just to make sure we get it straight here, that – I said that when a – a person like Osama bin Laden speaks, we better be careful about what he says, listen, pay attention to his words.
Listen to Osama carefully? How about we capture/kill him instead of letting the Pakistanis give him sanctuary?
BUSH: And– and we'll get [bin Laden]. It's just a matter of time. We've got a unit in the CIA who is spending a lot of time thinking about these high value targets.
So the NYT was lying on 4 July when they reported the CIA bin Laden Unit was being shut down?
These one on one interviews reveal how remarkably shallow President Bush is.
