Bush to apologize for not sending in troops earlier

Who's going to apologize tonight? President Bush, apparently. That's right, he's finally admitting he's made a not sending enough troops in the first place. Hey, haven't folks lost their jobs over this topic? Shinseki, for one? Interesting twist on justifying the escalation...

WASHINGTONPresident George W. Bush will tell the nation Wednesday night that he should have sent more troops to Iraq to fight the war during the earlier stages of the nearly four-year conflict, a senior administration official revealed.

Speaking from the Library — a White House room never before used by the president for a public address — Bush will also acknowledge that the rules of engagement were flawed and seek support for a new strategy to win the unpopular war, presidential counselor Dan Bartlett said.
