Ari & I
White House Press Briefing with Ari Fleischer
 
 
Monday, April 14, 2003 - 12:30 PM
 
 
by Russell Mokhiber
 
     
 

Mokhiber: Lawrence Eagleburger, the Secretary of State under George Bush Sr, told the BBC yesterday: "If George Bush Jr. decided he was going to turn the troops loose on Syria and Iran - after that he would last in office for about 15 minutes. In fact if President Bush were to try that even now, I would think that he ought to be impeached. You can't get away with that sort of thing in this democracy." Can you get away with that sort of thing?

Ari Fleischer: I've answered that question previously up here.

(End of press conference. Ari refuses to take follow up and walks away.)
