Canadian PM Jean Chretien blames the US for 9/11
Jean Chretien deserves to be snubbed and rebuked by President Bush. Chretien said:
"You cannot exercise your powers to the point of humiliation for the others. That is what the Western world -- not only the Americans, the Western world -- has to realize. Because they are human beings too. There are long-term consequences," Mr. Chrétien said in the pre-taped interview.
"And I do think that the Western world is getting too rich in relation to the poor world and necessarily will be looked upon as being arrogant and self-satisfied, greedy and with no limits. The 11th of September is an occasion for me to realize it even more."
Found this story on Instapundit. Glenn Reynolds then followed up with a longer excerpt of Chretien's interview sent to him by the Canadian Embassy. He also has feedback coming in from Canadian readers. Suggest going to his site to read the latest being said there about Chretien.
