Open Mike Catches Bush Blaming Syria for Hezbollah Escalation
Posted by Xeno on July 17, 2006
This from truthdig:
At the G8 summit for world leaders, President Bush was caught on a live microphone telling Tony Blair that he held Syria accountable for Hezbollah?s actions against Israel.
?What they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it?s over,? Bush told Blair while chewing on a buttered roll.
Important: This is not a hypocrisy alert. Bush?s unguarded statements were for the most part consistent with his public ones. But it?s still a fascinating glimpse into his manner of interaction with America?s closest ally.
