How many ‘slips of the tongue’ heve occured to George W. Bush? We advise you to stay clear – they’re apparently catching. And note Blair’s attempt to correct the ‘slip’ results in an admission more telling of the warmongers. [“I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made.” George W. Bush. Boy, we just BET you guys do!!]
Blair ‘disaster’ admission over Iraq a ‘slip of the tongue’: official

LONDON (AFP) – Downing Street moved swiftly to play down an apparent admission by British Prime Minister Tony Blair that the invasion of Iraq had been a “disaster,” labelling his comments a “slip of the tongue.”
In an interview Friday on Al-Jazeera’s new English-language channel, broadcaster Sir David Frost suggested that the 2003 US-led and British-backed invasion had “so far been pretty much of a disaster.”
“It has,” Blair replied, before adding quickly: “But you see, what I say to people is why is it difficult in Iraq? It’s not difficult because of some accident in planning.
“It’s difficult because there’s a deliberate strategy… to create a situation in which the will of the majority for peace is displaced by the will of the minority for war.”
