Default Bush’s Candid MidEast Remarks Recorded at G8 Meeting


Bush’s Candid MidEast Remarks Recorded at G8 Meeting

During a closed door luncheon at the G8 Summit, a table microphone accidentally caught candid remarks between President Bush and Tony Blair.

Bush didn’t pause to chew his food as he says to Tony Blair, “What [the United Nations] need to do is to get Syria to stop Hezbollah from doing this shit.”

The American President indicated that he was frustrated with the United Nations for not doing more to mitigate the crisis, saying, “I felt like telling Kofi to get on the phone with [Syrian President] Assad and make something happen.”

President Bush’s remarks were in sharp contrast to an official statement yesterday saying that all international leaders at the G8 were in agreement in dealing with the Mideast crisis.

CNN sources report that Bush refused to include a cease fire in the G8 statement. President Chirac of France, wanted language that criticized Israel’s overuse of force but Bush would not allow criticism of Israel in the official statement.
