Bush would waterboard again

Former president George W. Bush says he'd waterboard KSM again:
GEORGE Bush has admitted that 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded during his administration and said he wouldn't hesitate to give the order again.

“Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” the former US President told the Economic Club of Grand Rapids in Michigan.

“I’d do it again to save lives.”

Mr Bush also defended his decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003, calling the attacks on September 11, 2001 “a declaration of war on our country”.

“Getting rid of Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do and the world is a better place without him,” he said.

Amazing.

  1. "Mr Bush also defended his decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003, calling the attacks on September 11, 2001 “a declaration of war on our country”."

    I agree, that is amazing, no it's beyond amazing. He was the president of the US for heaven sake, and yet he blames Iraq for Sept. 11th? Doesn't he even remember his own speeches on his reasons for war?

    It makes me wonder what he thinks is the reason for invading Afghanistan was.
