EXTREMELY strong words, huh? i have mentioned this to ppl after i saw that and no one else recalls such a statement being made by him. the only reason
that i know that i heard correctly was that my (now ex) husband was watching w/ me and even though he (at the time) supported the war was just as
shocked by the answer as i was.
i have since searched everywhere for the interview and can't find it. i have looked through quotes of his (just want to prove that we really did see
and hear this to others... not to myself mind you as i know it happened, but i understand others needing verification), and although i have not found
the quote or interview, some of his other quotes are just as
"God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve
the problem in the Middle East."
