Bush Reverses Himself, Says War on Terror Can Be Won

Bush Reverses Himself, Says War on Terror Can Be Won: "NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Reuters) - One day after saying the war on terror could not be won, President Bush sought on Tuesday to calm a political storm over his comments and said America would prevail. On the second day of the Republican convention, Bush found himself on the defensive as the campaign of his Democratic challenger, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, took aim at the president's comments to a television interviewer suggesting the war on terror was not winnable.

In the interview broadcast on NBC's 'Today' show on Monday, Bush was asked if the war on terrorism would ever be won.

'I don't think you can win it,' he replied. 'But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world.'"

I guess it all depends on what your definition of "it" is.
