Ari & I
White House Press Briefing with Ari Fleischer

Mokhiber: Ari, two things.

Ari Fleischer: We're going to -- the one question rule has to be in effect because I'm going to have to be in the Oval at 1:05 p.m.

Mokhiber: The Washington Post reported yesterday on its front page that "many people in the world increasingly think that President Bush is a greater threat to world peace than Iraqi President Saddam Hussein." Why do you think that millions of people around the world hold that view?

Ari Fleischer: I don't think that -- number one, the President is going to do what he thinks is right representing the American people. And when you look at what the American people think is right, the American people strongly support the President's efforts to bring peace and to make certain that Saddam Hussein is disarmed so that he cannot harm the peace. That's the President's focus.

Mokhiber: But why do you think millions of people hold that view?

Ari Fleischer: I'm not in a position to judge it. I can tell you that I've seen the President travel abroad. And for example, when he was in Bucharest, hundreds of thousands turned out in the streets of Bucharest to welcome the American President.
