TheStar.com - O'Neill backtracks on Bush broadside: "Rumsfeld said if O'Neill thought Bush came into office with a predisposition to invade Iraq, that is a 'total misunderstanding' of the situation.
But he said when the administration came into power in January, 2001, the only place in the world where an enemy fired at Americans 'with impunity' was in Iraq, where pilots were enforcing 'no-fly zones.'
'It was something the president had to address, did address,' Rumsfeld said."
The problem here is that it's something that was addressed. When our planes were targetted by Iraqi radar or shot at frequently we fired back often (and entirely appropriately) destroying the radar and air defense units that had targetted them.
