ADDENDUM: Bush fully understands the angst, agony and sorrow that Afghan citizens feel when an innocent life is lost, won’t do a thing to stop it


I left out a line from Bush in this morning’s presser, about civilian casualties caused by American military operations in Afghanistan: “I can assure the Afghan people, like I assured the President, that we do everything we can to protect the innocent”. That is, we are already doing everything we are going to do to protect the innocent, and since this has not prevented many civilians getting killed in the past, many more of them will be killed in the future.
