    President Bush stated in his 2002 State of the Union address that there were 30,000 weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Colin Powell addressed the UN and told them they "think" there are weapons of mass destruction.

    At a press conference recently, Bush was asked if he still believed that there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and he told the reporter that he didn't understand the question.

    Seems Bush can give simplistic off the cuff answers to complex issues, but he has major though disorientation when it comes to simple questions.

    I think he smelled a trick question and stalled. Smart move I think!

    COuld you give the exact wording of the question verbatim? Many times these lib reporters are more focused on layering their premisi with jabs than making sense.

    Must be something in the oval office affecting the brain. First Clinton, now Bush?

    I notice that liberals ignore this about Kerry (take his answers when he is asked about exactly what he voted for regarding the war for example).

    Lib reporters - do mean reporters that you believe as biased to one view? I thought journalism was to provide facts and allow the reader to make a decision based on those facts.

    To quote the reporter from the feature film - "Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War" was "President Bush, are there weapons of mass destruction in Iraq as you stated?"

    Bush's reply was - "I don't understand the question" and he immediately turned away.

    The film is very interesting as it is interviews with CIA agents, Intelligence Veterans, and there are government officials interviewed. News clips of Colin Powell, Dick Cheaney, Rumsfeld, and Bush.

    You might take a look at it on the Sundance Channel.

    Another really good film on the Iraq war is "Truth, War, & Consequences" airs on PBS and you can watch it on your computer from the site.

    is your screen name "There's Tillis", referring to the stuttering genius performer Mel Tillis?

    hmmm, just searched the 2003 SOTU and don't find this reference. How about you get the cut and paste paragraph you are referring to:

    www.whitehouse.gov

    Then click SOTU , then 2003.
