WILLIAMS: A lot of people have seen, in this series of speeches you're giving on Iraq, a movement in your position. They call it an acknowledgment that perhaps the mission has not gone as it was originally planned, that the U.S. would be welcomed as liberators.Lots of people are having fun with this today, but even if we take Bush seriously, how does he figure the US was welcomed, peacefully or not? Does Bush honestly think that a ferocious insurgency could survive in a land where the US was "welcomed"?
BUSH: I think we are welcomed, but it was not a peaceful welcome.
Bush's connection with reality is increasingly frayed.
