“Major combat operations in Iraq have ended,” Bush said at the time. “The battle
of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on Sept. 11, 2001, and
still goes on.”
How can the White House admit that hanging that banner was wrong, but not that Dubya's words were?
“President Bush is well aware that the banner should have been much more
specific and said ‘mission accomplished’ for these sailors who are on this ship
on their mission,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said Wednesday. “And
we have certainly paid a price for not being more specific on that banner. And I
recognize that the media is going to play this up again tomorrow, as they do
every single year.”
Oops, the MEDIA is spending all their time working to embarrass this adminstration!
Maybe this administration shouldn't be working so hard to make it easy on them.
