More evidence of George Bush's arrogance.
During an interview that aired on CBS' 60 Minutes yesterday, Bush was asked if he owed the Iraqi people an apology for fumbling this war and not providing better security. He responded by saying he felt the Iraqi people owe the United States a debt of gratitude. Huh? Owe the U.S. a debt of gratidue for ripping their country to shreds and murdering innocent civilians?
From the transcript of Bush's 60 Minutes interview:
PELLEY: Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?
BUSH: That we didn't do a better job or they didn't do a better job?
PELLEY: Well, that the United States did not do a better job in providing security after the invasion.
BUSH: Not at all. I am proud of the efforts we did. We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude, and I believe most Iraqis express that. I mean, the people understand that we've endured great sacrifice to help them. That's the problem here in America. They wonder whether or not there is a gratitude level that's significant enough in Iraq.
Poor Bushie. I almost feel sorry for him. After all this time, he doesn't have a clue. He still thinks we were greeted as liberators and have done this great thing in Iraq.
