"Sometimes I'm Happy"

During his August 21 press conference, George W. Bush responded to a question about the Iraq War by saying that "sometimes I'm happy" about the conflict. But many readers and TV viewers never heard the remark, since journalists
I have a feeling that this is a common act in the current adminsitration's watch. McCarthyism is alive and well.

I'm not even sure what the context was (probably it was that he is pleased with progress in the war at some points, not that's happy that there is a war), but hiding it away and editing it out bespeaks of a lack of honesty and integrity in the press. I don't like it.
