I wince reflexively whenever I hear Bush giving an interview but this one is especially bad.
WILLIAMS: But those weren’t Iraqis.
BUSH : They werenâ€™t, no, I agree, they weren’t Iraqis, nor did I ever say Iraq ordered that attack, but they’re a part of, Iraq is part of the struggle against the terrorists. Now in terms of image, of course I worry about American image. We are great at TV, and yet we are getting crushed on the PR front. I personally do not believe that Saddam Hussein picked up the phone and said, â€œal-Qaida, attack America.â€
