More Presidential Forgetfulness on Larry King Live

Short term memory lapse or rewriting history, you make the call...

KING: So is that what led you to say on that ship that the battle is over?
G. BUSH: No, I didn't say that. Now, let's be careful about that.
I went on that aircraft carrier to thank a crew.

What Bush himself said on the ship (Link):
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all very much. Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. "

That is one heck of a way to thank one crew. This crew single-handedly won the battle of Iraq...? Technically, he didn't say exactly what Larry King said, but it certainly is not a straight-forward answer.
