Bush, 9/11, and Osama

From the Left says it all in Bush’s own words:

“The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.” – George W. Bush, 9/13/01

“I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” – George W. Bush, 3/13/02

Why does anyone take Bush seriously anymore?

    “Why does anyone take Bush seriously anymore?”

    A better question is why anyone takes the “From The Left” blog seriously anymore.

  2. I’m sure with more than 5 seconds of digging, I could find the exact sources. Here’s the Equivalent (Media Matters).

    In his September 11 speech from the Oval Office, apparently the day before the meeting Barnes attended, Bush said: “Osama bin Laden and other terrorists are still in hiding. Our message to them is clear: No matter how long it takes, America will find you, and we will bring you to justice.”

    This is not the first time Bush has appeared to reverse course on the necessity of capturing bin Laden. As Think Progress noted, Bush told reporters on September 16, 2001, that he wanted bin Laden “dead or alive”; at a March 13, 2002 press conference, Bush said, “I am truly not that concerned about him.”

    What was that about not taking “From The Left” seriously?
    Christopher is quite accurate.
    freerepublic on the other hand….

  3. Ironic that Richard source is the “Free Republic” which is neitehr working for freedom or for the Republic.
