Paul Bremer, Clown: Telling the truth is not how things are done in Washington















Paul Bremer is on the Talking Head circuit promoting his new book, “My Year in Iraq”. Today on CNN’s “The Situation Room”, Wolf Blitzer asked Bremer to contrast his on-air remarks in 2004, when he was the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, to new revelations contained in his book.

Back then, he repeatedly stated in on-air interviews that he felt we had enough military personnel to do the job in Iraq. But – and I know this will come as a shock – Bremer now reveals that in the summer of 2004, he sent a message to Condoleeza Rice that he felt the US had about half the number of troops it needed to do the mission, and he compared the situation on the ground in Iraq to the Gulf War, where the U.S.-led coalition amassed a fighting force of over 500,000.

When asked why he didn’t reveal the truth to the American people at the time, Bremer replied “That’s not how things are done in Washington.”

That’s right, Paul Bremer says that telling the truth to the American people is not how the Bush administration operates.

Clown. Ass Clown.

The best was when Russert asked him whether Iraq would be a democracy at the end of the process. Bremer said "It's a democracy now."
