President Bush has condemned Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathirs remarks! Apparently he pulled Mahathir aside between meetings of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and said the following, according to the AP: "President Bush on Monday personally condemned the Malaysian prime minister for his statement that Jews rule the world, pulling Mahathir Mohamad aside at an international economic meeting to tell him the remarks were wrong and divisive, Bushs spokesman said.
White House press secretary Scott McClellan quoted Bush as telling the Malaysian leader, It stands squarely against what I believe in." Good for Bush! I wonder if anyone will accuse him of being undiplomatic. Maybe Chirac should.
