Embarrassing, indeed

For Reuters, that is. Here's their headline:
Mandela still alive after embarrassing Bush remark
Here's what Bush said.

First off, who said it was embarrassing? Reuters is supposed to report the news, not editorialize or pass along their personal newsroom feelings. Bush made the same comment earlier in the week and it was instantly apparent what he meant.

But every time this occurs his central theme gets lost in the shuffle--and that is, if you're looking to blame somebody, start with Saddam. And don't forget the insurgents and al Qaeda sympathizers blowing up innocent people and taking out infrastructure, essentially in his name. Too many people like to blame Bush for everything bad in Iraq, when in reality he simply exposed it.
