Not the sharpest tool in the shed: GOP Rep. Deborah Pryce was quoted on Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume making the following statement while visiting a hospital in Iraq yesterday.
The effects of the embargo are widespread. There are fewer nurses trained, there are fewer doctors trained, and the medical equipment shortages obviously a problem in his eyes. So we obviously need to address those things.
It's unclear who the "his eyes" refers to, but it is likely President Bush.
But that aside, the sorry state of Iraq's hospitals is not the result of the U.N. embargo. It's Saddam Hussein's fault, and his alone. That should be clear to everyone by now.
