I think President George W. Bush may have finally lost it.
According to the BBC:
President George W. Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq – and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.
“I’m driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, ‘George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan.'”
If these are accurate quotes, I understand this.
I thought for a minute I was reading The Onion.
As a general rule, almost everything about politics bores me, so this is in no way a comment one way or the other about the various wars we are fighting or the possibility of a Palestinian state. But those quotes bother me a lot.
