No longer "Mission Accomplished"?

The quotes and picture says it all. From Think Progress:

Bush today:

Before our mission in Iraq is accomplished, there will be tough days ahead.

Bush, May 2003:

On Thursday, I visited the USS Abraham Lincoln, now headed home after the longest carrier deployment in recent history. I delivered good news to the men and women who fought in the cause of freedom: their mission is complete and major combat operations in Iraq have ended.

Talk about a picture and an event that comes back to bite you in the butt. This political stunt has to rank as the ultimate gaffe for this presidency. Iraq has done nothing but gone downhill since this event. More soldiers have died since "Mission Accomplished" than during the entire "mission." Just like the WMDs and the other purported reasons for pre-emptively invading Iraq, "Mission Accomplished" couldn't have been more wrong.
