I tend to think this was a throwaway remark the significance of which GWB didn't understand, clearly inserted in the press release by someone with an agenda. However Carolyn Glick could well be right, combining 1949 borders with GWBs call for a sovereign state, the first President to take that position, the administration might be selling Israel down the river.
