Which is the real quote from Jay Garner, the retired general in charge of American efforts to rebuild Iraq?

A.) "The task ahead looms large, but it is our duty as Americans, just as it was in Japan, to rebuild. With our help, Iraq will become strong and free, a beacon of hope to the rest of the Middle East."

B.) "We ought to be beating our chests every day. We ought to look in a mirror and get proud and stick out our chests and suck in our bellies and say: 'Damn, we're Americans!’"

C.) "We kicked a little ass, we took some names. All that’s left now is to lift a little leg and mark our territory."

D.) "Damn. I knew we made a mess over here, but… damn."

I'm hoping "A", but I'm fearing "D"

I do have to know which one it really was.

I was going to guess B, but C wouldn't surprise me. Where did the quote come from?

C is correct. I got it off the AP wire. Garner was complaining about the media giving so much attention to anti-American protests in Iraq.

I'm glad Garner is already proving to be an accomplished statesman and diplomat.

They made fun of this on the Daily Show last night


*edit* speaking of the Daily Show they did a funny "Bush vs. Bush" debate. I think they might still have a clip of it on their Web site
