❄  Beautiful White House  

Did GW Bush when asked about Iraq “Do you believe it’s a civil war, sir?” actually reply that

. . . it’s hard for me, living in this beautiful White House, to give you an assessment, firsthand assessment. . . . There are others who think it is. It is, however, a dangerous situation, thereby requiring action on my part.

“Listen, I considered several options — one, doing nothing, and that if you don’t believe the situation was acceptable, then you should do something. And I didn’t believe the situation was acceptable. . . . ” [Note 1]

Yes, it is true. As the ellipses above show, there was more to his remark, and it’s a fair observation that what’s quoted above is the least comprehensible of GW Bush’s reply to Martha Raddatz’ question.
