Bush Flip Flops on Withdrawal

1999, June 5th, then-Governor Bush on President Clinton and withdrawal of US forces, “I think it’s important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they would be withdrawn.”  

2007, May 1, now-President Bush on withdrawal of US forces, "Setting a deadline for withdrawal would demoralize the Iraqi people, would encourage killers across the broader Middle East and send a signal that America will not keep its commitments," Bush said last night. "Setting a deadline for withdrawal is setting a date for failure." 

Bush's MO of fear and lies continues unabated.
