Jackass of the Week 

Via Fark, we learn that North Carolina Republican congressman Walter Jones, credited withresponsible for the renaming of French Fries to "Freedom Fries," regrets both that and the war that spawned it. He says we had no justification for going to war, something that most of us, especially the French, knew bloody well a long time ago.

I wouldn't be shocked if the US press was ignoring this, for fear of being barred from Prezitential press gatherings, but if it were from source even less reputable than The Guardian (i.e., said US press), I would ignore it. But it looks legit: Jones doesn't apologize, or really even express remorse.
