“President Bush announced the new surge of twenty thousand soldiers in an especially wooden speech to the American public from the White House library on January 10, 2007. Almost four years after the invasion of Iraq and with some three thousand American soldiers now in their graves, he publicly acknowledged for the first time that all had not gone according to plan and that he had played a role in the decisions that had wrecked Iraq: ‘Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility lies with me.’ “
