How accurate.


Other gems by Dick on Iraq from this Meet the Press program:

"I think we are making progress."

"Just because it's hard doesn't mean we shouldn't do it."

"This is a very difficult assignment."

"It is a global conflict."

"I do believe we can win in Iraq."

"We've got issues we need to work through. You do the best you can with what you have."

"I have enormous regard for the man (Scooter Libby)."

"You can ask, but you'll get the same answer."

"I spend as much time as I can and do other things. I spend most of my time on the job."

More by Dick:

"In Iraq, a ruthless dictator cultivated weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them. He gave support to terrorists, had an established relationship with al Qaeda, and his regime is no more."
