We know the whitehouse are all on crack...

...but this is plumbing new depths even for them.

On CNN's Late Edition show, Whitehouse press spokespuppet Tony Snow was interviewed about the disaster in Iraq.

First off, he said that the Whitehouse disagreed with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's claim that the Iraq war was "the worst foreign policy mistake" in U.S. history. He said it was important to remove Saddam Hussein from power and noted that a majority of senators voted in 2002 to authorize the use of force in Iraq. He then failed to mention that this happened because Bush lied to everyone and falsified intelligence to support his desperate desire for warmongering. Tony Snow then went on to say this, and frankly, it's priceless:

"The strategy has barely had a chance to begin working."

4 years, 3140 dead US military, 256 dead coalition military, 32,544 wounded and maimed US military and over 22,000 dead Iraqi civilians (officially - over 600,000 unofficially) and Tony Snow thinks the strategy has barely had a chance to begin working? I'm stunned at how this guy can make these sorts of claims with a straight face. Most of the rest of use would crack up and admit we were only joking but I think he really believes that comment.

He carried on : "The war is tough, but the solution is not to get out. It is to provide the kinds of resources and reinforcements our forces need to get the job done".
Well I'm not sure about Tony Snow, but as I understand it, we're not at war. This is a military action because Bush never declared war. Still, in a Whitehouse where the Bush-induced genocide is being regarded as simply a "comma" in the history books, I supposed it's not unexpected to find people like Tony Snow being flippant with their remarks.

He carried on : "The president understands the importance of debate about the war on Capitol Hill and understands lawmakers' anxiety about the war.". Bullshit. Bush couldn't give a flying fuck about anyone else, least of all the lawmakers.

More: "What I would say to members of Congress is: Calm down and take a look at what's going on, and ask yourself a simple question: If you support the troops, would you deny them the reinforcements they think are necessary to complete the mission?". Dude. Listen. To keep implying that not sending money and troops is somehow not supporting them is simply another Whitehouse lie. The only way to support the troops is to pull them out. Sending more bullet magnets into the line of fire isn't going to work. It didn't work the last three times and it sure as hell isn't going to work this time.
