Bush: “I Was Unprepared For War”
GIBSON: What were you most unprepared for?
BUSH: Well, I think I was unprepared for war. In other words, I didn’t campaign and say, “Please vote for me, I’ll be able to handle an attack.” In other words, I didn’t anticipate war. Presidents — one of the things about the modern presidency is that the unexpected will happen.
This is reminiscent of “I don’t think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees” during the Katrina tragedy, in spite of a 41-page report by the Department of Homeland Security’s National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (NISAC), predicting just that. It is also consistant with the administration’s admission that it didn’t anticipate the Iraq insurgency.
Unprepared for war; unprepared for a national emergency; unprepared for the contingencies of a war BushCo started. What a legacy!Click here for reuse options!
