May 07, 2004 01:07 IST
US President George W Bush on Thursday said he was sorry for the humiliations Iraqi prisoners and their families suffered but insisted there are also 'thousands of acts of kindness and decency taking place every day in Iraq from the American soldiers'.
"Rumsfeld is a really good Secretary of Defence. Secretary Rumsfeld has served our nation well. Secretary Rumsfeld has been Secretary during two wars. He is an important part of my Cabinet and he will stay in my Cabinet," Bush told reporters in Washington.
He repeated his assurance, "We will take a good look at the system and make sure it won't happen again."
