    President Bush looks back on eight years in the White House

    Outgoing US President George Bush has said his biggest regret is the failure of intelligence over Iraqi weapons.

    In a wide-ranging TV interview, he declined to say whether he would have decided to invade Iraq if he had known it had no weapons of mass destruction.

    Asked about what he regarded as his greatest achievement, Mr Bush said that his administration had fought a war against "ideological thugs".

    Mr Bush will hand over to President-elect Barack Obama on 20 January.

    The outgoing president told ABC television: "The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq."

    He added: "I wish the intelligence had been different."

    Asked what his greatest accomplishment was, Mr Bush replied: "I keep recognising we're in a war against ideological thugs and keeping America safe."

    He also defended his actions over the recent economic crises.
    "When the history of this period is written, people will realise a lot of the decisions that were made on Wall Street took place over a decade or so," he told ABC.

    Mr Bush - whose approval ratings are at an historic low - said he was happy for history to be his judge.

    "I will leave the presidency with my head held high," he said.

    I wonder if all the right-wing blogs and the people that patronise them that were so insistant on WMD will conveniently forget or gloss over all of this?

    Aaahhh, don't worry about it Georgey, because of you a few hundred thousand foreigners were killed, at least they weren't apple pie Americans, well apart from the Yank soldiers that you got killed, but weren't many of them so no problem.

    To sum up he should have said 8 years of failure.

    What a sack of shit. The "ideological thuggery" emanated from his own administration and destroyed his country from the inside out.
