We owe everyone an apology

AMERICAblog: Because a great nation deserves the truth: "Cheney wants an apology to the military and to our vets for those of us who have the audacity to criticize the brutal abuse of international and US law taking place at Gitmo. And Cheney's right, we do owe everyone an apology. Here's mine: - I'm sorry Bush told us there were WMD when there weren't. - I'm sorry Bush told us Saddam had ties to Al Qaeda, and didn't. - I'm sorry Cheney told us that Saddam's agents had met with Mohammad Atta in Prague, when he didn't. - I'm sorry Colin Powell became so spineless that he threw his principles out the window and lied before the entire UN. - I'm sorry over 1700 US servicemembers are dead in a war that was based on a lie. - I'm sorry our soldiers are being told their own parents have to pay for their body armor, because the US military won't. - I'm sorry the Bush administration lied about what really happened to Pat Tillman, and then lied to his parents. - I'm sorry Bush demanded Saddam comply with UN inspections, then when Saddam did comply, Bush invaded anyway. - I'm sorry Bush told us Mission Accomplished nearly 2 years ago, and the bloodshed continues. - I'm sorry Bush told us the few incidents at Abu Ghraib were only isolated incidents, when they weren't. - I'm sorry Bush told us 7 months before the Iraq war that he hadn't yet decided to invade, when he had. - I'm sorry Bush keeps telling us the over 500 prisoners at Gitmo are such bad terrorists that they simply can never be released, but then Bush can't even come up with enough evidence to charge even one of them with jaywalking."
I just thought I'd sign on for this apology.
