The word leaped from President Bush's lips, dismissive and defiant, as though the questioner should have known better, and perhaps should not have asked.
At his press conference today, the president came refreshingly (although just a tad belatedly) clean about the fact that Iraq played no part whatsoever in the Sept. 11 attacks. Watch it. A howler from Bush: "Nobody?s ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack." OK, maybe not in those words, but how 'bout in these?
