In a press briefing at the White House, spokesman Scott McClellan said that he never heard or read a statement where US President George W. Bush said God told him to invade Iraq.
Recently, a BBC broadcast quoting Palestinian Prime Minister and Foreign Minster saying that they were in a meeting with George W. Bush, which allegedly said "God told me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan,' and I did" and "God told me, 'George go and end the tyranny in the Iraq'".
McClellan said it's "absurd" and that Bush never said such things, even though he admitted he wasn't in that particular trip.
"I didn't say it was going to be his longest speech; I said that it would be unprecedented in detail about the nature of the enemy we face. And I think if you go back and look at the first half of the speech, you'll recognize that that's the case," McClellan added.
"And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East. And by God I'm gonna do it," Mr. Shaath reports Bush as saying.
