Fear of Clowns

Chris Matthews asked a hardball question about the response to the Downing Street Memo 

A hard follow up question which wasn't asked (transcript) regarding Bush and Blair's Tuesday response to the question to both on whether the Downing Street Memo is accurate. From both came, "[W]e worked hard to see if we could figure out how to do this peacefully." Of course followup questions were not allowed.

Well, here's the disconnect I keep seeing here.

The president said, we wanted to do this peacefully. We wanted to accomplish this peacefully. Well, what was the this? If Iraq didn't have weapons of mass destruction, if they weren't connected to 9/11, what was the this? And what is that this now? It seems like the this now is nation-building. Back then, it was fighting what the president said were the dangers of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism.

Crooks and liars has the video.
