George W Bush Apologizes for the Iraq War (Satire)

Former U.S. President George W. Bush apologized for the Iraq War today, saying the conflict was "his biggest mistake."

In a statement released to a Texas newspaper, the 66-year-old Bush said he meant well when he sent America to war but asked the American people to forgive what in retrospect was "a clear example of poor judgement."

"After the events of September the 11th, I focused all my energy on protecting America from the next attack," the statement reads. "Regrettably in our zeal to defend America, my administration exaggerated threats which - although real - did not constitute a clear and present danger to the United States.


It's about damn time!

I should have read it more thoroughly. Shame on me. This is so out of character for Bush I should really have known better. Please forgive me.


The story describes what SHOULD happen, if Bush had even the

smallest amount of integrity and honesty.

But since he doesn't - its fantasy.

What SHOULD happen

So true. I was angry at myself for believing that story,not to mention posting it, getting all excited thinking just maybe...


Even if W realizes what a blunder Iraq was, apology is not

part of the Bush family lexicon.

Case in point was the cold blooded shooting down of Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3, 1988, killing all 290 people on board.

In August 1988, Newsweek quoted Vice President George H. W. Bush as saying "I'll never apologize for the United States of America. Ever. I don't care what the facts are."

Are you aware that this is satire?

Come on. Look at the other stories with the Daily Currant.

Pope Benedict comes out as gay?

Krugman declares personal bankruptcy?

This is fake.

This is fake.
