After trying to delineate the difference between "benchmarks" and "timetables," George Bush said, in today's press conference about Iraq, that he thinks he needs to inform the public about what is going on. But what he said was: "I will continue to make explanations." Is this just his usual logorhea? Or, did it give us insight into what he really wants to say: "I will continue to make apologies." This is probably just wishful thinking, eh?
