In one of the most brutal critiques of the administration’s policy toward Iraq by a member of Congress, East Bay Rep. Pete Stark said President Bush would be responsible for “an act of terror” by launching a massive bombing campaign to oust Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
“I think unleashing 3,000 smart bombs against the city of Baghdad in the first several days of the war . . . to me, if those were unleashed against the San Francisco Bay Area, I would call that an act of extreme terrorism,” said Stark, a Democrat from Fremont.
The Democrats are going to start referring to the President as “Bush the Satan” any day now.
