"This is god, calling George"

This is from Echidne of the Snakes:

"Does Jehovah talk to George Bush? Does George talk to Jehovah? Are they on first name basis? We don't know for sure but a new documentary argues that the answer to all these questions is yes."

"Mr Shaath, the Palestinian foreign minister in 2003, claims Mr Bush told him and other delegates that he was spoken to by God over his plans for war.

"He told the film-makers: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan. And I did, and then God would tell me, George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq... And I did.

"'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.'"

"The Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, who attended the June 2003 meeting as well, also appears on the documentary series to recount how Mr Bush told him: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."

Mark this coming Monday on your calendars; this documentary appears to be a BBC series beginning then. Station? No info was given on that; check your local TV listings.

Seems as if I've seen him say that on film somewhere. I'll see if I can figure out where.
