2003: "Mission Accomplished"...syke.

"President George W. Bush admitted Monday it had been a mistake to hang a banner saying "mission accomplished" on a US battleship where he declared major combat operations in Iraq over in 2003."

Oops. At least he can admit when he is wrong, right?

That shows the power of public perception. The banner had nothing to do with Iraq. It was a banner for the ship returning from deployment, one that was extended to support combat ops IIRC.

ummm... How about an Aircraft Carrier? I know it is expecting too much for a reporter to be able to tell the difference, but could they at least have some one proof read their work?

Pinball, give them a break, only the President isn't allowed to make mistakes.

As written beforehand, the "Mission Accomplished" sign was directed at the carrier's mission -- the carrier that President Bush spoke from. The lefties can seem to handle that iota of info. This had nothing to do with Bush's own pronouncement of the war at that time. Duh!!!
