Okay, let me get this straight...

Today Bush answered questions about 9-11 commission reports that Iran provided safe passage for 9-11 terrorists on their way out of Afganastan. He mentions his concerns about their "nuculer" weapons program, totalitarian government, and harboring of high-level al-Qaida operatives. But he wants to get all the facts straight, first.

How can he claim that Iraq was a more significant threat?

Mind you, I don't think we should be attacking Iran or anything like that. I just find it ridiculous that Bush can talk about the changes Iran's government needs to make, the need to get all the facts straight before commenting, etc. These all suggest a slow and careful approach to Iran, there's no sense of urgency.

Yet he can still defend the Iraq war and justify its timing?!
