Gog, Magog, and Dubya

Just when I thought that there could not be anything more incomprehensible about the decision to invade Iraq, reports are surfacing that "[i]n 2003 while lobbying leaders to put together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France's President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they must be defeated."

While I would like to see further confirmation of this story, the notion that we attacked Iraq because Shrub thought that Saddam was some scary monster that he read about in his magic book is profoundly disturbing.
