(CBS) Top evangelist Pat Robertson said he warned President Bush to prepare the American people for U.S. casualties in Iraq but that Mr. Bush replied, "We're not going to have any casualties."

The religious broadcaster, who is a strong Bush supporter, spoke about his pre-war conversation with the president Tuesday on CNN's "Paula Zahn Now" program.

Robertson said Mr. Bush seemed confident, even elated during their conversation in Nashville prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

"You remember Mark Twain said, 'He looks like a contented Christian with four aces.' I mean he was just sitting there like, 'I'm on top of the world,'" Robertson told CNN. "And I warned him about this war. I had deep misgivings about this war, deep misgivings. And I was trying to say, 'Mr. president, you had better prepare the American people for casualties.'"
