Bush ‘can’t remember’?

A lot of people have interpreted the Leader’s ‘answers’ to some interview questions, about the disbanding of the Iraqi army, as suggesting he can’t remember important things, or that he has no idea what’s going on. I think this is an erroneous interpretation. Rather, I believe, Bush didn’t know ahead of time what lie would satisfy his interviewer. He says whatever he feels will ‘work’ at the moment, without regard to truth or falsity; thus, for example, he can say that the ‘policy’ was to preserve the Iraqi army, because he thinks this presents himself in the best light, and even though the policy, his policy, was to disband the Iraqi army.

We’ve seen this before with his claims that wiretaps required a court order, which he said to get some people to trust him, and even though his wiretaps didn’t require a court order and he has a large closet full of tape recordings of Ted Kennedy’s phone conversations.
