George Bush still thinks invading Iraq was a good idea
Former US President George W. Bush still reflects proudly on his presidency and maintains that the choices he made were good political decisions – despite the fact that he led the US into a drawn-out war in Iraq based on false pretenses.
In an exclusive interview with the Dallas Morning News this week, Bush said he is not interested in “finger pointing” or “self-pity” regarding policies and political decisions made during his time in the White House, but also noted that his presidency was largely shaped by unexpected and disastrous events, such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina.
As for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the former president said he is “confident the decisions were made the right way.”
“I’m comfortable with what I did,” Bush said while reflecting on the legacy he left behind as president. “I’m comfortable with who I am.”
