Bush Flip Flops on Exit Strategies

George Bush has (forgive the f-word) flip flopped on the value of timetables per these quotes from Think Progress. The 1999 quotes were from Bush's criticism of Clinton's military involvement in Kosovo (where we did not get bogged down in a quagmire as in Iraq).

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.”-- George Bush, April 9, 1999

“I think it’s also important for the president to lay out a timetable as to how long they will be involved and when they will be withdrawn.” --George Bush, June 5, 1999

“It doesn’t make any sense to have a timetable. You know, if you give a timetable, you’re — you’re conceding too much to the enemy.” --George Bush, June 24, 2005
