Scuzzy, its not perplexing, its not irrelivant. The administation has been denighing over and over for the last several months that it ever claimed Iraq was an "immediate threat." Not the phrasing, the justfication. They`re just trying to cover their asses over not finding any WMD`s.
I`d like to know why you think I`ve GOT to be kidding myself over not thinking that WMDless, sactions ravaged Iraq posed an immediate threat to anyone.

"I wonder how many thought the same thing back in the early 1990`s? (right before Saddam went into Kuwait)"

Apparently, the first Bush adminstration, when they said on national television that they would not intervean in the "border dispute between Iraq and Kuwait." This was their origional position, and was given by prominite captured Iraqi generals as their main justification for going to war. They posed such a threat to the rest of the world that they wouldn`t have attacked if they knew the rest of the world woul

It was good. But, I personally love the quotes of Collin Powel in the UN going on about his great intelligence sources and the iraqi chemical/biological/nuclear weapons program. It would be funnier if it weren`t so sad.

I wouldn`t say it was lying, really, probably just forgetfulness. The exact words he used aren`t an issue anymore than they were for Clinton. But it`s still fun to make fun of politicians. :-)

I would have to disagree. I, personally, didn`t believe that Iraq posed a threat to the rest of the world.

tvolk - try to be a little more melodramatic please.

I`m not really sure why he was denying that he said Iraq was an "immediate threat," and I would like to see the full transcript of the interview (what they were talking about before the clip). Anybody who thinks that Iraq did not pose an immediate threat to the rest of the world has GOT to be kidding themselves. The fact that Rumsfeld is saying that nobody ever used that phrase is a perplexing yet IRRELEVANT incident. Liberals are just grabbing at straws trying to regain the presidency.

Randabana -are you high ? Rumsfeld said neither he or the President ever used the term "immediate threat". He said it was just folklore that was invented by critics of the administration. The fact that he did use that term (which is in the video) proves he lied and has an unreal degree of hubris. That is what scares the rest of the world. The fact you don`t recognize this is terrifying.

What about the part when he said he didn`t say it, and then they read the quote of him saying exactly that? D`oh!
