"I Traveled To Baghdad..."because.... Subtitle: Windspike's Wonderful Weekend Finish The President's Sentence Contest

I traveled to Baghdad to personally show our Nation's commitment to a free Iraq, because it is vital for the Iraqi people to know with certainty that America will not abandon them after we have come this far.
So, that's what the president said. Do we believe him? I'll bet we can finish his sentence in a much more honest, forthright, and pithy way. So this leaves me with...drum roll please...

Windspike's Wonderful Weekend Finish The President's Sentence Contest

Rules: there are none.

Just finish the sentence that follows with what you think is the most plausible reason why W really went to Baghdad. In other words, pretend you are president and you have been struck by the magic truth wand (not unlike the Jim Carrey flick Liar Liar) and you have to tell us exactly why...

"I traveled to Baghdad because..."

In the event of a tie, the breaker will be to answer the following question: Was his stated mission accomplished? Explain...

As a bonus tie breaker, estimate how much you think W's PR junket to Baghdad cost the US Treasury (and the taxpayers of America).

In the end, we see that the W, has no remorse for the blood spilled in this Iraq Conflagration (perhaps because none of his relatives have been KIA for it) as evidenced by the remainder of his closing paragraph:
The challenges that remain in Iraq are serious. We face determined enemies who remain intent on killing the innocent, and defeating these enemies will require more sacrifice and the continued patience of our country. But our efforts in Iraq are well worth it, the mission is necessary for the security of our country, and we will succeed.
Can anyone prove the president's claim...that the Return on Investment was worth the outlay? Now that's the real challenge, isn't it?

Rumy said we'd reached a turning point in Iraq, and they keep writing this into my speeches--thought I'd better see it for myself.

"...it's yet another attempt to make me appear to be the actual president instead of a intellectually challenged patsy who has become a political liability and can only serve our neocon masters' ends by becoming a martyr after being assasinated in some faraway... Hey! Wait just a gol-dern minnit!"

... we finally got that bastard Zaqa...Zagar...Zacraw...you know, that terrorist fella that we bombed the other day, and I'm here to gloat over it in a desparate attempt to raise my flagging poll numbers.

"Cause I wanted to see all the Victory over Terra, I mean we killed another terrible person and I wanted to reassure everyone that we are still on that path to Victory that the Voices in my head are trying to convince me are Real. And Unca Dick said that we are winning. And Karl said that we are Winnin' and so did Rummy...so if I say it Enuf- even in a godamned Foreign Country- it must be real, those dead soldiers and dead Iraqis mean nothing- I mean look how many Billions Exxon already made this year...."
