GWB, No Regrets...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth


Former President George W Bush told Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that he had no regrets over the decision to invade Iraq.

Bush was on to discuss his new book praising his father (and to honor Face The Nation’ss sixtieth anniversary). 43 insisted he did not invade Iraq to finish what his father started, and said he was surprised when Saddam Hussein called his bluff over the invasion, but didn’t regret the decision to go in.

“I think it was the right decision,” Bush said. “My regret is that a violent group of people has risen up again. This is al Qaeda plus. I put in the book that they need to be defeated. And I hope they are. I hope the strategy works.”

Golly gee, does anyone think the president would freely admit his blunder?

  3. Dave, I'm sure he doesn't. It is as dmarks pointed out.

    Future historians will no doubt debate whether it was a blunder or a stroke of brilliant leadership.

  4. The same sort of arrogance among Presidents that results in such things as "Heck of a job, Brownie" and Obama keeping Eric Holder on for so long.
