  Pining for the spotlight, The Bent One takes a break from anal cigars and spews forth.

Breaking with tradition under which US presidents mute criticisms of their successors, (Note this only applies to Republican Presidents, contrast Carter and Clinton, with Bush 41 and Ford) Clinton said the Bush administration had decided to invade Iraq 'virtually alone and before UN inspections were completed, with no real urgency, no evidence that there were weapons of mass destruction.'

The Iraq war diverted US attention from the war on terrorism 'and undermined the support that we might have had,' Bush said in an interview with an ABC's 'This Week' programme.

Clinton said there had been a 'heroic but so far unsuccessful' effort to put together an constitution that would be universally supported in Iraq.

The US strategy of trying to develop the Iraqi military and police so that they can cope without US support 'I think is the best strategy. The problem is we may not have, in the short run, enough troops to do that,' said Clinton.

On Hurricane Katrina, Clinton faulted the authorities' failure to evacuate New Orleans ahead of the storm's strike on August 29.

People with cars were able to heed the evacuation order, but many of those who were poor, disabled or elderly were left behind.

'If we really wanted to do it right, we would have had lots of buses lined up to take them out,' Clinton."
