This is a conversation between Helen Thomas and Scott McClellan where McCLellan states that we were invited into Afghanistan and Iraq. Looks like the Bushes are trying to fool the red states even further.

Wire Queen Helen Thomas today ripped into White House spokesman Scott McClellan over his claims the United States is in Afghanistan and Iraq -- by invitation.

Q Were we invited into Iraq?

MR. McCLELLAN: No, Helen, I'm talking about today. We are there at their invitation. They are sovereign governments -- Q I'm talking about today, too. 

MR. McCLELLAN: -- and we are doing all we can to train and equip their security forces so that they can provide for their own security as they move forward on a free and democratic future. Q Did we invade those countries? 

MR. McCLELLAN: Go ahead, Steve.
