Bush Fib- no. 6
An article on the ABC News website describes the interview the network's senior White House correspondent, Martha Raddatz, recently had with President Bush. Check out this revealing exchange:
Bush conceded earlier that before the surge began last year, he was pessimistic about the way the war in Iraq was going.
"How worried were you?" Raddatz asked.
"I was worried. Look, I'm worried any time it looks like we're going to fail in Iraq," Bush said.
During that time in 2006, when many were saying Iraq was in a full-blown civil war, Bush kept his rhetoric upbeat, saying in speeches that We're winning" and "We have a plan for victory."
Raddatz asked the president about that, and the president insisted he did it to keep up troop morale.
So, while the President was pessimistic, he would assure his subjects- er, the American people- that "we're winning" and "we have a plan for victory." No distortion, exaggeration, or obfuscation there. Just a plain old lie.
