George W Bush has the gall to
write publish a book about his presidency that he, no doubt, expects the American people to buy and read. Does he believe that two years of obscurity is sufficient to dull the memory of Abu Ghraib, Fallujah, and the torture of US prisoners at his (admitted) command?
Not to mention Kyoto; The ICC; destroying any chance of diplomacy with Iran; 100,000 dead Iraqis; 4,000 dead Americans; supporting the mass slaughter of Lebanese civilians by Israel in the 2006 Lebanon war; trampling all over the Geneva Conventions.
And then, of course, there was Hurricane Katrina.
Is two years long enough for the American people to forget?
Yes, for many it probably is.
Will it be long before a similar literary offering emerges from Bush’s puppetmeister, Cheney?
He could call it: “Topiary – or, How To Shape A Bush My Way.”
