George W. Bush's memoir has only been out a few days and already high level officials in two of the governments of countries who have been considered staunch allies in the Global War on Terror are calling Bush a liar:
British officials said today there was no evidence to support claims by George Bush, the former US president, that information extracted by "waterboarding" saved British lives by foiling attacks on Heathrow airport and Canary Wharf. In his memoirs, Bush said the practice – condemned by Downing Street as torture – was used in CIA interrogations of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks on the US.
[The Germans]Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has said that ex-US President George W. Bush is not telling the truth in his memoirs, released on Tuesday. Schröder said he never offered his unconditional support for Bush's aggressive policy against Iraq.
My conservative friends worship the ground Bush walks on -- without for a moment contemplating the sad fact that they are the only ones who are of the belief that the man has so much as a shred of character and integrity in him.
