Bush says he can't remember making that order.
Quote:
It was the move seen as the single biggest mistake in the wake of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in Iraq: the disbanding of the Iraqi army.

Yet US President George Bush is worryingly vague over how it happened.


But Paul Bremmer says Bush knew.
Quote:
WASHINGTON, Sept. 3 — A previously undisclosed exchange of letters shows that President Bush was told in advance by his top Iraq envoy in May 2003 of a plan to “dissolve Saddam’s military and intelligence structures,” a plan that the envoy, L. Paul Bremer, said referred to dismantling the Iraqi Army.

Poor suckers. They don't even bother to get their lies in line anymore.
