GW Bush take lessons from Orwell

From the White House, Office of the Press Secretary, May 23, 2005:
Q: And if I may ask you, Mr. President, as you know, the casualties of Iraq is again high today -- 50 more people dying. Do you think that insurgence is getting harder now to defeat militarily?

BUSH: No, I don't think so. I think they're being defeated. And that's why they continue to fight...
Does this mean I should hope the insurgents start winning, so they stop fighting?

Also, from the same question:
Q: Just to follow up on the treatment of the prisoners. Mr. President, you know, anti-American feeling is running high in the Muslim world. We've seen it in Afghanistan after the alleged disintegration of the Koran in Guantanamo....

KARZAI: Those demonstrations were, in reality, not related to the Newsweek story. They were more against the elections in Afghanistan; they were more against the progress in Afghanistan; they were more against the strategic partnership with the United States. We know who did it. We know the guys. We know the people behind those demonstrations.
