"He was calling President [George W.] Bush all the time - 'Get into the Middle East, get into the Middle East.' So now we're in that war for $7 trillion, thousands and thousands of our people have been killed, millions of people overall, and frankly, we're straightening it out now but it's been a disaster for our country".
