Bush Doesn’t Remember why Iraq Army Disbanded

4 09 2007

From the LATimes*, regarding the disbanding of the Iraqi army:

“The policy was to keep the army intact; didn’t happen,” Bush told biographer Robert Draper in excerpts published in Sunday’s New York Times.

Draper pressed Bush to explain why, if he wanted to maintain the army, his chief administrator for Iraq, L. Paul Bremer III, issued an order in May 2003 disbanding the 400,000-strong army without pay.

“Yeah, I can’t remember; I’m sure I said, ‘This is the policy, what happened?’ ” Bush said, adding: “Again, Hadley’s got notes on all this stuff” — a reference to national security advisor Stephen J. Hadley.

It’s hard to keep track of minor details like that when you’ve got brush that is fucking TAKING OVER your ranch in Texas.  I guess the real question is if he honestly doesn’t remember (seems to be a problem among republicans these days) or if he does remember and just thinks that not remembering is less embarrassing.
