A bulletin from Planet W. Salon blogger Joe Conason has picked up on a truly weird statement that Our Only President made in a story reported by Dana Milbank and Dana Priest of the Washington Post.

George W. Bush said that he decided to go to war with Iraq after having given Saddam Hussein "a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn't let them in."

Do I need to point out that Hans Blix, Mohamed ElBareidi, and company were in Iraq, diligently looking for weapons, and left only when the threat of a US invasion came imminent?

Asks Conason: "What possessed the president to make an assertion that everyone on the planet knows to be untrue? And who is going to take the responsibility for this one?"
