Bush Regrets ‘Mission Accomplished’

President Bush has admitted a mistake! Not the weapons of mass destruction, mind you, or the war in Iraq, Katrina, Harriet Miers, Guantanamo Bay, the firing of US attorneys…No, Bush has come clean about the “Mission Accomplished” banner that was displayed on the USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1, 2003. “It was a sign aimed at the sailors on the ship,” he told CNN, “but it conveyed a broader knowledge. To some it said, well, Bush thinks the war in Iraq is over, when I didn't think that. But nonetheless, it conveyed the wrong message.” He also regretted his “bring ’em on” and “dead or alive” taunts after the September 11 attacks.
