Bush Tells Karzai That His Own Experiences in Afghanistan Are Wrong

A foreign leader from a region of supreme interest to the United States comes to Camp David to brief the American president on what is going on. The foreign leader speaks his mind, offering his best assessment of the experience he is living. Then the president tells the visitor from abroad that he is wrong.

As Bush famously declared at a policy session in 2005, "See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."

Oh, come on TTH.

Your link is to an opinion article from the Nation that takes what the president said completely out of context and juxtoposes it against what Karzai said to "create" a controversy.
