Werk een paar jaar onder de regering Bush, hou je mond, doe wat er van je gevraagd wordt, ga met pensioen en schrijf een boek over alles wat er fout was. Beetje laf wel. Maar kennelijk zit er goed geld in.
Weet iemand meer namen dan deze vier?
Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, voormalig commandant van de Amerikaanse troepen in Irak:
“…led America into a strategic blunder of historic proportions.”
Scott McClellan, voormalig perssecretaris:
“But he and his advisers confused the propaganda campaign with the high level of candor and honesty so fundamentally needed to build and then sustain public support during a time of war. … In this regard, he was terribly ill-served by his top advisers, especially those involved directly in national security.”
Allan Greenspan, voormalig hoofd FED:
“Mr. Bush was never willing to contain spending or veto bills that drove the country into deeper and deeper deficits, as Congress abandoned rules that required that the cost of tax cuts be offset by savings elsewhere.”
Richard A. Clarke, voormalig contra-terrorisme adviseur:
“Clarke also says that on September 12, 2001, President Bush asked him to try to find evidence that Saddam Hussein was connected to the terrorist attacks. In response he wrote a report stating there was absolutely no evidence of Iraqi involvement and got it signed by all relevant agencies (the FBI, the CIA, etc.). The paper was quickly returned by a deputy with a note saying “Please update and resubmit,” apparently unshown to the President.”
