WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) acknowledged a good deal of introspection after all the questions lately about his government's actions before the Sept. 11 attacks and in Iraq (news - web sites), but not a whiff of contrition. Bush was asked in his prime-time news conference if he had made any mistakes.

"I'm sure something will pop into my head here," he said Tuesday. It didn't.

Bush is rarely one to second-guess himself and wasn't about to now, despite failures highlighted in the government's pre-Sept. 11, 2001, intelligence operations, the futile search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and all the recent violence there.

"I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes," he said Tuesday night. "I'm confident I have."

But "maybe I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one."

He went on, "I'm sure historians will look back and say, gosh, he could've done it better this way or that way."
