    A consensus report by whom, partisans? You can find people on both sides of the issue whether or not today is Friday. How do you know what the region would be like today with Saddam Hussein in power? What you want to ignore is the opposite point of view as yours and because it hasn't turned out well, Thanks Obama, you believe you are right. The problem with people like you is that if you were wrong, hundreds of thousands of Americans would have been in harms way. People like you always have 20-20 hindsight and are never proactive on any issue especially national security

Some of these abuses have taken place at Abu Ghraib prison where some of the worst abuses of the Saddam Hussein regime took place."

    The president's Arabic TV offensive came two days after the state department compiled a devastating survey of media coverage of the Abu Ghraib scandal.

    "This Greater Middle East that Washington promises is not a recipe for democracy, openness, freedom and respect for human rights; rather, it's a new formula to guarantee US control _ and a way to keep all Arab regimes humiliated and subjugated," a commentator in the Palestinian daily al-Ayyam wrote.

    The Arab League's ambassador in London, Ali Muhsen Hamid, said he doubted that Mr Bush's remarks would win over Arab viewers. "They will not be persuaded, because they don't trust the Americans," he said.

    Something you will never accept is that evil feared Bush and that is why our military respected him.

    I am glad people like you aren't in charge of the security of my family. You would form a panel to deal with evil

    It was a Bush era (2006) NIE report, if they were partisan, they were partisan right.

I think the number to be left in Iraq was 10,000 and Obama is now keeping troops in Afghanistan. I think he learned his lessen from pulling out of Iraq, either way he's back in and in worse shape than if we stayed.

    The NIE report was before the Surge and ignored the PC war that liberals like you want and always require. Glad you aren't responsible for national security

    Yes, Bush was evil. And he caused a significant increase in global terrorism, opened up Iraq for exploitation by al Qaeda which morphed into the Islamic State in Iraq in 2006, right under his nose. He's being recorded as thee worst president in American presidential history.

    THANK GOD I DONT HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY.

    Had I been responsible for national security at the time, you wouldn't even know what the Islamic State was.
