Everyone knows the President’s flying 30 miles out to sea – to an aircraft carrier they had had to slow down so it wouldn’t reach port before he got there – was a photo op designed for later campaign footage, courtesy of the taxpayer.

Click the BBC report and see what you think. (Or click here for the LA Times‘ take.)

Verbatim from the Washington Post:

“I don’t believe anyone that I know in the administration ever said that Iraq had nuclear weapons.” – Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, May 14, 2003

“We believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.” – Vice President Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003
