This quote was given a few weeks ago, but I came across it today:
“My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will — that will then prevent us — that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East…”
So what he’s saying is, if we were not dependent on oil from the Middle East, then we would not have started the war? Has he retracted this statement? He can’t seriously believe this, can he? What about those of us that were told we invaded Iraq to free the Iraqis or to take down Saddam, or to fight terror?
