Mistakes were made.... 

I love the Spanish language. One of the things I love about it is the subtle variations of meaning provided by all those verb tenses. Then you have these standard ways of saying things like "It broke on me" which in English would be "I broke it." Speaking of breaking things, President Bush spoke last night (in English) about how things are going in Iraq. He proposed a new set of steps which includes sending more than 20,000 additional troops. He said mistakes were made...borrowing easily from the lovely Spanish-style passive verb syntax. But as always, I could be wrong so don't listen to me, listen to the President himself, presented here without filters: streaming RealAudio MP3 download
