The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Bush winds up campaign to counter Iraq criticism

The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Bush winds up campaign to counter Iraq criticism: "WASHINGTON — In the latest example of a broader White House campaign to rescue his second term, President Bush on Wednesday wrapped up a series of speeches about Iraq by defending the 2003 invasion despite erroneous prewar intelligence about weapons of mass destruction.

'It's true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong,' Bush said — omitting that he and top aides had ignored warnings from midlevel intelligence agents that some of the evidence was suspect — then quickly added that he has no regrets about his decision to oust Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. 'We are in Iraq today because our goal has always been more than the removal of a brutal dictator. It is to leave a free and democratic Iraq in its place.'"

Just because we don't have a plan nor know what victory is why quit now? It's not like anyone important is going to die.
