Here is the real Bush legacy. Bush asserts his authority to torture when and who he wishes. Bush refuses to adhere to the US Army restrictions on torture and the treatment of prisoners.This heinous action draws less attention than who was eliminated from the latest round of idol as Rupert and friends give us bread and circuses to distract from our loss of ourselves and what we thought we stood for.***US President George Bush has vetoed legislation passed by Congress that would have banned the CIA from using waterboarding and other controversial interrogation techniques.Lawmakers included the anti-torture measure in a broader bill authorizing US intelligence activities.Read more of article from tvnz
The George W Bush Presidential Library is now in the planning stages. You’ll want to be the first at your corporation to make a contribution to this great man’s legacy. The Library will include:
The Hurricane Katrina Room, which is still under construction.
The Alberto Gonzales Room, where you can’t remember anything.
The Texas Air National Guard Room, where you don’t have to even show up.
The Walter Reed Hospital Room, where they don’t let you in.
The Guantanamo Bay Room, where they don’t let you out.
The Weapons of Mas s Destruction Room (which no one has been able to find).
The Iraq War Room. After you compl ete your first tour, they make you to go back for a second, third, fourth, and sometimes fifth tour.
The Dick Cheney Room, in the famous undisclosed location, complete with shooting gallery.
Plans also include: The K-Street Project Gift Shop – where you can buy (or just steal) an election.
The Airport Men’s Room, where you can meet some of your favorite Republican Senators.
Last, but not least, there will be an entire floor devoted to a 7/8 scale model of the President’s ego.
To highlight the President’s accomplishments, the museum will have an electron microscope to help you l ocate them.
When asked, President Bush said that he didn’t care so much about the individual exhibits as long as his museum was better than his father’s.
President George W. Bush and seven of his administration’s top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.
