Iraq: We'll Leave If They Ask Us To
From an anonymous contributor over at WTF Is It Now?, the blog of the incomparable Maru, whose regular assaults upon the douchebags in charge leave us weeping with laughter:
Why is this quote not burning all around the internet right now???? From the whitehouse's _own goddam site_, a direct quote from the May 07 press conference. Quote Duh bya:Spread the meme! Stumble It!
"We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It's their government's choice. If they were to say, leave, we would leave."
The White House official site. It's way down near the end of the press release, after reporters have begun asking questions.
From CBS' report of the quote dated May 2007.
