Bush Reflects On Administration

Looking back on his eight years in the White House, President George W. Bush pinpointed incorrect intelligence that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction as "biggest regret of all the presidency."

"I think I was unprepared for war," Bush told ABC News' Charlie Gibson in an interview airing today on "World News."

"In other words, I didn't campaign and say, 'Please vote for me, I'll be able to handle an attack,'" he said. "In other words, I didn't anticipate war. Presidents -- one of the things about the modern presidency is that the unexpected will happen."

At least he admitted the WMD error.

  1. "Oops, did I do that."- Steve Urkel. But, at least Urkel didn't intentionally cause mayhem. That wasn't an error, they just needed a great reason to invade Iraq. Everyone knows there were not WMDs, so who cares if he admitted to it. It doesn't change anything and in fact he most likely said that just so people would get a reaction similar to yours.
