So Sorry

So very sorry. Haven't seen such genuflecting since we had to beg for our spy plane back from the Chinese. Or, maybe, since that time a bunch of rich Texans were going for a joy ride in one of our subs and killed about 10 people on a Japanese fishing boat.

Diplomatically, Mr. Bush's ambitious call for the replacement of 75 percent of the United States' Mideast oil imports with ethanol and other energy sources by 2025 upset Saudi Arabia, the main American oil supplier in the Persian Gulf. In an interview on Wednesday, the Saudi ambassador to Washington, Prince Turki al-Faisal, said he would have to "seek an explanation" from Mr. Bush.

I'm sure the Little Green PeePee crowd will be outraged.
