Man who secretly recorded Bush says he regrets publication: “An old friend of President Bush who secretly recorded their private conversations and released them to the media said he has regrets and is turning the tapes over to Bush.”I was hard on Wead, justly I think. He has said he was sorry and done the right thing. It cannot have been easy to do this and his actions were the correct ones. As far as I can see, this certainly puts the public portion of the issue to rest. Oh that Bill Clinton had acted this way in his own time of troubles! Wead is to be commended for acting well. Everyone deserves a second chance, heaven knows I have needed more than one, and so here is to a future where Wead does even better work than he has done up to now. Here is to healing, hope, and reconciliation.
