well, this is something i think every intelligent already knows, but bush has been relying on propaganda to sell the war in iraq. his former press secretary, who is pimping a book, has now even said so.
in another newsflash, he also says the war wasn't necessary.
bush, for his part, hasn't commented on the book. but, he did say that the only way we can lose the war on terror is to defeat ourselves. he also said we're learning as we go. that sounds like he had a well laid out plan. comparisons were also made to post ww2 europe and japan, as we helped them rebuild their societies. (does he not realize that those examples are terrible because after ww2 there weren't active combatants trying to fight us as we "rebuilt"? wait, he does, and yet he still made the comparison.)
