Bush's 2000 War Promises

CBS spotlights George W. Bush's war promises made when accepting his nomination in 2000 at the last Republican convention here. "When America uses force in the world, the cause must be just, the goal must be clear, and the victory must be overwhelming.'' Clearly things did not work out the way he planned. His cause may have been just in Afghanistan but his goal was not achieved. In Iraq the goals kept changing and victory has not been achieved. Finally, as Jessica Tuchman Mathews of the Carnegie Endowment For International Peace points out, "You have to conclude that the war, so far, has made us substantially less safe."
