My WMD comment has nothing to do with politics or our brave military. Merely an analogy to show how media influences public perception- Drew Brees (@drewbrees) June 19, 2012
I apologize if the WMD comment offended anyone. Especially our military. There is no one I respect more than our service men and women- Drew Brees (@drewbrees) June 19, 2012
Brees is as media savvy as they come in the game, so his backtracking isn't a surprise. President George W. Bush's insistence that Saddam Hussein was harboring WMDs was the impetus for a war. Brees clearly didn't mean any disrespect by it, but it was a pretty heavy analogy to draw.
