In the Oval Office on January 27, 2004, reporters “asked [President] Bush whether he had any doubts about the prewar intelligence. The Iraq Survey Group would continue its search, he replied vaguely, and it was important to ‘find out the facts and compare the facts to what was thought.’ Pressed to respond to Democrats’ calls for an independent investigation into the administration’s prewar claims, Bush ducked the question. The world, he said dismissively, was ‘better off without’ Saddam Hussein.”
