Bombs Away!

On February 19, 2005 at a church pancake breakfast in Allen, Texas, Johnson relayed a conversation he had with President George W. Bush in which he claimed the WMDs must still exist, that they were in Syria, and personally volunteered to fly a jet over Syria and drop two nuclear bombs. Eleven days later he clarified his comments to say that he was "kind of joking" about the matter.[1]
