Wait... What did he just say?

Yesterday, our exiting President said this in his final press conference:

"Not having weapons of mass destruction was a significant disappointment.”

No... No, wait a minute. Actually, had Iraq *had any* WMD, that would have been the disappointment. When rogue states don't have WMD, that is a significant pleasant thing. In fact, it is a very good thing that Iraq had no WMD. Because they might have used them!

I think what Bush means to say is that he was disappointed that his intelligence was wrong about the WMD, thus he sent us into a very long, expensive, and bloody war over smoke and mirrors from an intelligence department that was, at best, mismanaged at the highest levels, and, at worse, intentionally skewed to enrich the big businesses that have profited from these wars.

But, that's not what he said, now, is it?

I wonder how many "misspoken" things must come out of a man's mouth before people start to wonder what is really going on in his head

Could you imagine the insanity of existing in a state of mind where one wished Saddam Hussein actually had a hand hovering over the big, red button?
