This is pretty painful considering the amount of blood and treasure lost during the Iraq War which began in 2003. Ari Fleischer, White House Secretary under George W. Bush can’t recall when the Iraq War started but he’s got strong strong feelings about the way the current administration is handling things (badly).
Regardless of what anyone thinks of going into Iraq in 2002, it's a tragedy that the successes of the 2007 surge have been lost & abandoned.

He’s taking a beating from respondents, as well he should. Feel free to jump in.
And here he is in 2003 prior to the Iraq invasion trying to fend off the press. Note that I said 2003.
