I'm hoping GWB addresses it in his book. I've always believed that the Russians were up to their necks in getting the WMD out of Iraq to hide their complicity with Saddam. That might have affected what info Bush could have made available.
Bush had the annoying habit of doing what was the best for the nation rather than what was best for himself politically.
“Bush had the annoying habit of doing what was the best for the nation rather than what was best for himself politically.”
That’s what I think. He had to know what was going on. I believe it was better to get the weapons out of Iraq and stashed somewhere where they could be monitored or destroyed then to say they were there and Al Queada use that for propoganda. (I think they got destroyed in Russia with their WMD)
Imagine if Al Queada said that they got hold of one of Saddam’s WMD?
I question whether this was “best for the nation” in the first place. He opened himself up for vilification, and made it easy for a poser like Obama to come along and do untold damage to the country. The truth might have been a better policy in this case.
