whose war is this?

Rummy says Bush never asked his opinion on invading Iraq

"I didn't advocate invasion, I wasn't asked." - Rumsfeld on THIS WEEK, this morning.

Now keep in mind, Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State, says he wasn't asked either.

If true, that means George Bush went to war in Iraq without asking the opinion of the Secretary of Defense of the Secretary of State. Who did he get his advice from, anyone? Are they telling us the president of the United States, who had no foreign policy experience whatsoever, had never visited another country in his life (give or take one or two I believe), made a decision to go to war in Iraq without asking the advice of his top advisers on the issue?

That's insane.
