He regret the banner?

I’m not the biggest fan of current U.S President George W. Bush, but sometimes the man surprises even me with some of his comments.

In a CNN interview, President George W. Bush told the world what he regrets about his term in office. With 2 wars, Hurricane Katrina, Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden still out there, the drop in America’s standing worldwide, and the global credit crunch, there is no shortage of candidates. So what did the man says he regretted?

The display of the ``Mission Accomplished'' banner when he gave a speech on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln about a month after the March 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Bush says that it ‘conveyed the wrong message’.

Since the war in Iraq is still going, I would think it did ‘conveyed the wrong message’, but of all the things out of the list, he picked a banner as the thing he regretted? To be fair, he also said that he regretted some of the comments he said like telling Iraqi insurgents in 2003 to bring them on', and 'Wanted, dead or alive.'

But he regretted things he said and a banner from a photo shoot? What about the wars, Hurricane Katrina, Osama bin Laden…
