Policy by Early Show

WTF? Bush Advisor Dan Bartlett declares that America will not tolerate the Saudi Dictatorship:

Think Progress: Yesterday on CBS's Early Show, senior presidential advisor Dan Bartlett took the "opportunity to clarify what President Bush is saying" about the war on terrorism:

BARTLETT: Not only after 9/11 do we have to go after Osama bin Laden and the people who perpetrated the act on 9/11, but also we had to change our policy in the Middle East. The policies of stability in tolerating dictatorships got us 9/11 in the first place. The status quo has to change.


SMITH: So you're talking about Saudi Arabia then?

BARTLETT: Absolutely.
