Bush slams Iraq war ‘revisionism’

`US President George W Bush has said too much is at stake in Iraq for politicians to make “false charges” about the reasons for going to war. [..]

Mr Bush said he was open to criticism for his policies but it was “deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how the war began”.

“Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war,” he said.

“The stakes in the global war on terror are too high and the national interest is too important for politicians to throw out false charges.”

[Also..] Mr Bush had strong words for Syria, saying it should “stop exporting violence and start importing democracy”.

He called on Damascus to “stop trying to intimidate and destabilise” Lebanon, and to co-operate fully with the UN inquiry into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.’
