Bush: The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq. A lot of people put their reputations on the line and said, you know … the weapons of mass destruction is a reason to remove Saddam Hussein. It wasn’t just people in my administration, and um … You know, that’s not a do-over, but I wish the intelligence had been different, I guess.

Bush: If he had had weapons of mass destruction, would there have been a war? Absolutely.

 

Gibson: No, if you had known he didn’t.

 

Bush: Oh, I see what you’re saying. Uh … You know, that’s an interesting question. That is a do-over I can’t do. It’s hard for me to speculate.
