That's what Bush said about his pal, Vladimir Putin, a few years ago. Not the same relationship today, eh?
Reuters reports that Putin accuses "somebody in the United States" of provoking the conflict in Georgia "with the aim of making the situation more tense and creating a competitive advantage for one of the candidates fighting for the post of U.S. president."
While he never said which candidate, it moved the White House to call the accusation "patently false."
