Remember Richard Meyers, the same guy that Bush quoted as saying that the Iraq war did not diminish U.S. ability to assert power on other fronts like Korea and Iran? Well, either Bush misquoted him, or he changed his tune.

The report assessed as "moderate" the level of risk for the U.S. armed forces in protecting America in light of ongoing operations, and pegged the risk for preventing future armed conflict as moderate but becoming significant.

Bush was asked during an April 28 news conference whether troop commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan were limiting U.S. military options elsewhere in the world. Bush responded that he asked Myers a similar question.

"I say, 'Do you feel that we've limited our capacity to deal with other problems because of our troop levels in Iraq?' And the answer is, 'No,' he doesn't feel we're limited. He feels like we've got plenty of capacity," Bush told reporters.


Got exit strategy?

Yet another news story that will never see the light of day or at least at a the bare minimum will fail to even register on the cognitive processes of the Bush supporters. The most it will make them do is go into their default "Well Clinton did ____ so what Bush does doesnt matter!" defence mode. If they havent caught on by now they never will.
