"Mistakes Were Made"

And that's pretty much all they've got to say about the US Attorney fiasco. Both Torquemada Gonzales and Baby Doc Bush used the same language, the very same phraseology. Mistakes were made.

Note the passive voice; translation: Although mistakes were made, WE didn't make them.

I work in state government and I can verify that that's the language of bureaucracy and avoidance. And the Rethugs call themselves the party of accountability, of personal responsibility.
