By my count, 561 people have now claimed responsibility for the 16 words. At first glance it seems important that Bush would admit wrongdoing, but when you look at it for more than 6 seconds it starts to look like another clever ploy. We know that Bush just does what he's told. Same goes for any president - there are plenty of people below him who are responsible for gathering, analyzing, and ultimately reporting intelligence to the President. Bush taking responsibility is meaningless. It still doesn't answer the question as to whether or not the case against Iraq was, as our British friends have been saying, "sexed up" to make Iraq look like a bigger threat than it really was.
