George W. Bush’s Mission Accomplished Lie Revisited

Yesterday, George W. Bush (aka Miserable Failure) blamed the “Mission Accomplish” fiasco on the crew of the USS Lincoln:

THE PRESIDENT: Nora, I think you ought to look at my speech. I said, Iraq is a dangerous place and we’ve still got hard work to do, there’s still more to be done. And we had just come off a very successful military operation. I was there to thank the troops.

The “Mission Accomplished” sign, of course, was put up by the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, saying that their mission was accomplished. I know it was attributed some how to some ingenious advance man from my staff — they weren’t that ingenious, by the way.

From Media Whores Online:

MSNBC’s Buchanan and Press…

BILL PRESS: Bush said…the crew of the ship put that sign up. Now we find out the White House has just confirmed, we just got this handed to us…Senior Navy officials now confirm the sign was in fact produced by the White House.

Bush to troops in Qatar, 6/05/03

I suppose it’s the troops’ fault that Bush said “that mission has been accomplished.”
