Bush Invokes 9/11 Attacks in Rejection Defense

HeadlineDec 08, 2006

In defending his rejection of the Iraq Study Group proposals, President Bush invoked the 9/11 attacks and said failure in Iraq could bring new attacks on the United States.

President Bush: “I also believe we’re going to succeed. I believe we’ll prevail. Not only do I know how important it is to prevail, I believe we will prevail. I understand how hard it is to prevail. But I also want the American people to understand that if we were to fail — and one way to assure failure is just to quit, is not to adjust, and say it’s just not worth it — if we were to fail, that failed policy will come to hurt generations of Americans in the future.”
