Jean Chretien is secretly a mathematician?
"I don't know. A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It's a proof. A proof is a proof, and when you have a good proof, it's because it's proven." -- Jean Chretien, former prime minister of Canada. The context appears to be something having to do with Canada's involvement in the Iraq war, but I'm having trouble finding details. It seems that this was a Big Thing in Canada when it happened, so perhaps I have Canadian readers who can explain?
