Video: Bush awards Medal of Freedom to Blair, Howard, Uribe

A bittersweet farewell to America’s two most stalwart allies in the war on terror, both now out of office. The clip is brief but the transcript is worthy. I had no idea John Howard was in D.C. the day before 9/11, or what he’d presciently said at the time.

Uribe’s a fine choice, but out of place here. Exit question: Didn’t Dubya forget someone?
