Ford Disagreed with Bush About Invading Iraq

Breaking news from the Washington Post. Ford was interviewed in July 2004 and claimed the Iraq war was not justified. The interview would not be released until after his death.

While you can read the interview here, below are a few the excerpts about the Iraq war:

"Rumsfeld and Cheney and the president made a big mistake in justifying going into the war in Iraq. They put the emphasis on weapons of mass destruction," Ford said. "And now, I've never publicly said I thought they made a mistake, but I felt very strongly it was an error in how they should justify what they were going to do."

"And I just don't think we should go hellfire damnation around the globe freeing people, unless it is directly related to our own national security."

Ford also offerred his criticism of Cheney, Henry Kissinger, and Rumsfeld. I think it's funny that as Bush has to call for a national day of mourning for Ford, he also knows that Ford think he's a dumbass.

I think it just shows that Bush has class. Not exactly breaking news either. Ex-President routinely disagree with sitting one but the classy ones (like Ford) don't grouse in public (or stipulate only "after death" releases of criticism).

Hi there - I'm sorry to break topic from your post, but I saw your photo from the Chihuly exhibit at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Were you in town to see it? I just happen to live acrossed the street from the Gardens and your picture caught my eye. I'll try to get some of my pics posted. It's even more awesome at night.

Peace,
