Not only does Dick want everyone to know how proud he is of BushCo's signature policy, he's pissed that the Iraqis took some of the luster off of Rummy's military masterpiece.
SCHIEFFER: Wouldn't it have been better, on reflection, to have a better and larger force [going into Iraq]?
DICK: Well, um, we could debate that forever and we may well. I think that the original campaign was masterfully done in terms of the small, fast moving force as you say, that achieved our inital objectives in taking down the regime and capturing Baghdad, that was a masterful performance.

(04-14) 17:51 PDT Washington -- Attorney General Michael Mukasey's assertion that an unmonitored terrorist phone call before the Sept. 11 attacks showed the need for more government wiretapping authority drew a scathing retort Monday from Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, who accused him of rewriting history and ducking questions.
In a March 27 appearance before the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, Mukasey said the 2001 terrorist attacks could have been prevented if the government had been able to determine the destination of a call from a known safe house in Afghanistan to the United States.
"From this day forward, EVERY person running against Rudy Giuliani can point out how most people at Yankee Stadium resoundedly booed Rudy Giuliani. If you are Joe Six Pack or Jane Housewife going about your daily life in Missouri, you are smart enough to realize that if the people at Yankee Stadium are booing Rudy Giuliani, they must know something that the media isn't telling you. After 3 more seconds of thought, Joe Six Pack and Jane Housewife make the connection that Rudy Giuliani is not a 9/11 Hero but that he did some awful things regarding 9/11. And even if Joe Six Pack or Jane Housewife agree with Rudy Giuliani 95% of the time, Giuliani just lost their vote, even if he attains the general nomination and faces Hillary Clinton.
The people of New York City booed Rudy Giuliani because they know what a scumbag he truly is. Giuliani couldn't get elected dogcatcher in New York City today unless the only other candidate running was named Michael Vick.

NEW YORK--Newly released internal CIA documents assert that former president George Herbert Walker Bush's oil company emerged from a 1950's collaboration with a covert CIA officer.
Bush has long denied allegations that he had connections to the intelligence community prior to 1976, when he became Central Intelligence Agency director under President Gerald Ford. At the time, he described his appointment as a 'real shocker.'
