Jeb Bush wants one and all to know that he is proud of his brother, his father, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and all the others who gave us the Iraq war. OK, he does admit there were a few mistakes which should give assurance to those who lost sons, daughters, brothers, and parents in this war without end. “I would have authorized an invasion and so would Hillary Clinton. And so would just about everybody that was confronted by the intelligence they got.” There definitely, according to Jeb, were those few mistakes. “By the way, guess who thinks those mistakes gook place as well? George W.Bush.” I am so glad that George finally admitted those mistakes.
Of course, just about every political expert on the Middle East did NOT agree with those “intelligent agencies.” Anyone who had studied anything about the Middle East understood that Iran was confronted by two enemies, Afghanistan and Iraq. And, guess who got rid of the enemies of Iran? George W. Bush. Let us assume for a moment that Bush was right and Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That would mean he had missiles. Not even the Bush crowd claimed those missiles could travel more than 500 miles. So, how could they threaten the US– if they actually existed?
George Bush authorized an invasion without any plan of what would happen after victory. George, please check the multitude of plans during WW II that detailed how an occupation would be carried out.
Jeb just proved that he is a true Bush!
