THE DECISION: According to Matt
THE DECISION: According to Matt Drudge, last night was decision night at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue:
"President Bush on Wednesday night was to make the ultimate call whether to strike and invade Iraq with military force, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
A top White House source offered few details, but did reveal the president would make a 'defining decision' by morning....
Plans for a major speech on Iraq next week by the president were under review. Bush might give Saddam a very short time period to disarm completely, perhaps as little as 72 hours, before military action."
In related news, I just finished Richard Brookhiser's cover story in the Atlantic Monthly . It's not available on line, but it's a pretty good read -- if nothing else, it puts into perspective the role of Bush's faith in his decision-making. This summary is accurate:
"He [Brookhiser] concludes that Bush's greatest strength is the clarity of his strategic and personal vision. His greatest weakness? Imagination."posted by Dan on 03.06.03 at 10:19 AM
