Caught Lying Again

They can't even keep their stories straight.

Rove Rues 'Mission Accomplished' Banner

WASHINGTON (April 16) - President Bush's top political adviser said this week he regretted the use of a "Mission Accomplished" banner as a backdrop for the president's landing on an aircraft carrier last May to mark the end of major combat operations in Iraq.

"I wish the banner was not up there," said White House political strategist Karl Rove. "I'll acknowledge the fact that it has become one of those convenient symbols."…

Last October, Bush said the White House had nothing to do with the banner.


Actually, he not only claimed that the White House had nothing to do with it - the little weasel tried to blame the sailors.

"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 somehow to some ingenious advance man from my staff. They weren't that ingenious, by the way. " - George W. Bush
