George Bush, trying to rationalize why Iran always seems to have better relations with its neighbours than his demonization of it would suggest --
Look, generally the way these things work is you try to be cordial to the person you're with, and so you don't want the picture to be kind of, you know, ducking it out. Okay, put up your dukes. That's an old boxing expression. (Laughter.)
Apparently Hamid Karzai and his Iranian counterpart agree that Iran is not helping the Taliban. Someone sitting in Washington DC (or Texas) says he knows better.
