“Catastrophic Success”

Monday, August 30th, 2004 · No Comments

Again demonstrating his mastery of the English language, Bush today declared the war in Iraq a “catastrophic success.” Huh? That’s like saying, “We rescued the decapitated man just in time!”

The Australian: “GEORGE W. Bush has admitted the US failed to plan for a speedy victory in Iraq, describing the sudden collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime as a ‘catastrophic success.’

“In a rare concession from the President, who dislikes admitting error, Mr Bush told Time magazine that his planners had not considered the prospect of a quick collapse.”
