Why is this man smiling? (Updated)

Just yesterday, Bush said (two posts back), “I’ve committed our troops into harm’s way twice, and it’s not a pleasant experience because I understand the consequences firsthand.” Today he went to an army medical facility and met some people who actually do understand the consequences of his decisions firsthand. Warning: graphic pictures of the consequences of Bush’s decisions.

Update: the White House website has five pictures of the visit. One is similar to my second picture above, one is just Bush giving his prepared remarks, and the remaining three are these rather tame pics:

Update to the update: it seems that Bush also played virtual reality games with the recovering soldiers, including a shoot-em-up set in Baghdad. See? He really does appreciate the consequences of war firsthand.
