Stop the Presses: Bush Admits Mistakes

By |

Shocking:

Q: Could I ask you which missteps and mistakes of your own you most regret?

PRESIDENT BUSH: Saying "bring it on," kind of tough talk, you know, that sent the wrong signal to people. I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner —you know, "wanted dead or alive," that kind of talk. I think in certain parts of the world it was misinterpreted, and so I learned from that. And I think the biggest mistake that's happened so far, at least from our country's involvement in Iraq is Abu Ghraib. We've been paying for that for a long period of time.
