Belmont Club: "The Fourth Infantry Division, at that time the most modern armored force in the Army, was not absent due to the 'Pig-headedness? Ignorance? Hubris?' of Donald Rumsfeld. It was missing directly as a result of the machinations of those supposed to administer Kerry's Global Test to America in the United Nations, who were large part responsible for closing Turkey to the United States. To continue Sullivan's quote: 'Why doesn't Edwards bring that up directly tonight with Cheney?' Cheney should. And to Sullivan's question: 'since it was so obvious so soon, why didn't the administration do anything to change that policy once its failings had become so glaring?' one might answer that it did, re-embarking the 4ID and sailing it a total of 1/5th of the way around the world into congested ports which had never planned to receive them, before marching it 600 kilometers up to Baghdad."
So the Washington Post has lied again. This time about Paul Bremer's remarks, and the reason for a temporary shortage of troops. It was because of the Kerry doctrine of "global test." Saddam would still be in power; the corrupt and fascist UN would still be getting and spending money from the Oil for Food Program, and Saddam would have WMD and perhaps using them against a US that couldn't find the will to defend itself because of Kerryesque doctrines. Maybe we could find a good tort lawyer to sue them on behalf of the little children--and put the money in his pocket.
