I was genuinely impressed by the humility shown by George Bush when talking with Blair on television today. He said how he thought his language such as "wanted dead or alive" had been a mistake at the start of the "war on turer". He said that the biggest mistake of the US in Iraq was Abu Gharib (although his pronunciation of that prison was rather unfamiliar to me).I did not know Bush was capable of such humility as he showed with his manner when he made those confessions. He was very humble.Then again, with the lowest approval ratings of any mid-term President in the history of the United States, he has (to modify a phrase from Churchill) a lot to be humble about.
