‘I apologize for the improvement’?

Let me also address the issue of Iraq. Unlike Afghanistan, Iraq was a war of choice that provoked strong differences in my country and around the world. Although I believe that the Iraqi people are ultimately better off without the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, I also believe that events in Iraq have reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible.

That’s quite the 180-degree flip-flop from our president in the same paragraph. In one breath Barack Obama makes an apology for the invasion of Iraq (war of choice) and in the next he says Iraqis are better off.

It sounds like he’s apologizing for Iraqis being better off.
