Interesting discussion of Bush’s second term

17 Sep

Posted on YouTube on 27th August 2007.

It is almost an hour long… The first interviewee is Robert Dallek, a prominent American historian of American Presidents. He is a Professor of History at Boston University. The second interviewee is Jim Wallis of Sojourners, whom I have mentioned many times. The third is Charles Gasparino, a Newsweek journalist and Huffington Post contributor.

That is a very short one of Wallis on the Iraq War. It clearly shows where he is coming from. I agree with him. It is also a good antidote to the stereotype (only too real of course) of an evangelical American. It is somewhat older than the first one, but still relevant. See also: Ten Lessons to Learn from 9-11 (2002).

LATER

How many more prominent people have to come out against the wisdom of George Bush before our government admits to its own sad me-tooism on Iraq? The latest is Alan Greenspan, as I am sure you all know.

THE former Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan, has criticised the US President, George Bush, for not responsibly handling the nation’s spending and for racking up big budget deficits.

In a new book that is already sparking controversy, Dr Greenspan also writes, without elaborating: “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.”
