Who Said It?

This quote is from 1993, in response to criticism for GW Bush not taking Saddam out in the first Gulf War:
“If we’d gone to Baghdad and got rid of Saddam Hussein — assuming we could have found him — we’d have had to put a lot of forces in and run him to ground someplace…Then you’ve got to put a new government in his place, and then you’re faced with the question of what kind of government are you going to establish in Iraq? Is it going to be a Kurdish government, or a Shia government or a Sunni government?” [he] continued. “How many forces are you going to have to leave there to keep it propped up, how many casualties are you going to take through the course of this operation?”
Answer: Dick Cheney.
