The Hearing

You've got to hand it to George. He played a blinder.

"Now, Senator, I gave my heart and soul to oppose the policy that you
promoted. I gave my political life's blood to try to stop the mass killing
of Iraqis by the sanctions on Iraq which killed one million Iraqis, most of
them children, most of them died before they even knew that they were
Iraqis, but they died for no other reason other than that they were Iraqis
with the misfortune to born at that time. I gave my heart and soul to stop
you committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq. And I told
the world that your case for the war was a pack of lies.

"I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims did not have weapons of
mass destruction. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had
no connection to al-Qaeda. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that
Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11 2001. I told the world,
contrary to your claims, that the Iraqi people would resist a British and
American invasion of their country and that the fall of Baghdad would not be
the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.

"Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you
turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of
them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of
them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies."
