Bush apologizing on Arab television

Scene: GW sitting with pursed lips and made up to look like a schoolboy caught stealing money from a drawer in his parents' room (they did something to his hair, looked jellied and smoothed, and probably eyes: he looked like he was about to cry). Then:
"First of all I want to say to you people....[pause, realizes his error and continues] of the Middle East that.."
--- !!! ;))))))))))))


[Explanation:
Try to say to an american black "you people", and you a guaranteed a physical attack. Say "you people" to a Jew - and become a card-carrying antisemite. "You people" nowadays and in American culture is taken as an expression of a purest form of disdain.
Obviously, this slip wasn't intentional and simply reflects his true attitude towards arabs
As naturally, no station pointed to the slip. No newspaper will, either. Politicians' words are smoothed to edit out such things in American press]

P.S. And this is how it appeared in a printed transcript (via Washington Post):

QUESTION: Mr. President, thank you for giving us this chance here in Al Arabyia. Regarding the alleged abuse of Iraqi prisoners, six U.S. soldiers are being reprimanded. Do you think that's enough?

BUSH: First, I want to tell the people of the Middle East that the practices that took place in that prison are abhorrent and they don't represent America. They represent the actions of a few people. Secondly, it's important for people to understand that in a democracy that there will be a full investigation. In other words, we want to know the truth....
etc.etc.
