Karl Rove regrets weak defence of Bush on Iraq

The failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq damaged President George W Bush's reputation, his former strategist Karl Rove says.

In his memoir, Mr Rove writes that he felt he should have done more to reject claims that President Bush lied about the existence of Saddam's weapons.

He called his perceived failure one of the worst mistakes he made.

But he described the achievements of the Bush administration as "impressive, durable and significant".
