Bush recently said that CIA advisors who painted a bleak picture of Iraq's future "were only guessing as to what the conditions might be like," and that there were really only "a handful of people who are willing to kill in order to stop the process".
Kerry and others pounced on these totally farcical remarks:
"We have an administration in disarray," Kerry said. "The secretary of defense saying one thing and being corrected. The president saying one thing and being contradicted by the prime minister. The secretary of state saying one thing and being contradicted by the president."In response, Bush hurriedly explained what he actually meant.
