    Will Bush's 'Mission Accomplished' Banner Hang In His Presidential Library? | TPMDC

    Former President George W. Bush and members of his administration broke ground on the new George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas earlier this week, but at least one question about the decor remains unanswered: will the infamous "Mission Accomplished" banner be put on display?

    Does he want it to?

    That was the most misunderstood sign in history. The "Mission Accomplished" was the ship's mission and the war...not the peace keeping and nation building that followed.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Yes, I think that would be quite fitting. It's one of the iconic moments of his presidency. Of course, it most likely wont be there since it makes Bush look like an incompetent failure. But it belongs in a museum.

    Who knows?

    He does address it with some humility in his book. As a space consideration I would think a photo would be more likely than the banner itself if anything.

    If you are that concerned about it, why not use the contact info on the centers web site & make a polite suggestion?

    Well, I'm not that concerned, I was just quoting Indiana Jones.

    If I was him I wouldn't want it in my library.

    I voted "no" but I should've voted "other."

    If the man wants it in his library, I say go for it. Otherwise, no.

    We all make mistakes, nobody enjoys having their noses rubbed in it. Personally, I don't think Bush deserves to have his nose rubbed in it in his frigging Presidential library.

    I don't get the purpose of Presidential libraries, but I at least get that that's not the place where you make fun of a President.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That was the most misunderstood sign in history. The "Mission Accomplished" was the ship's mission and the war...not the peace keeping and nation building that followed.
    The sign matched the speech President Bush gave:

    Excerpt:
    In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of the world. Our nation and our coalition are proud of this accomplishment — yet it is you, the members of the United States military, who achieved it. Your courage — your willingness to face danger for your country and for each other — made this day possible. Because of you, our nation is more secure. Because of you, the tyrant has fallen, and Iraq is free.

    Operation Iraqi Freedom was carried out with a combination of precision, and speed, and boldness the enemy did not expect, and the world had not seen before. From distant bases or ships at sea, we sent planes and missiles that could destroy an enemy division, or strike a single bunker. Marines and soldiers charged to Baghdad across 350 miles of hostile ground, in one of the swiftest advances of heavy arms in history. You have shown the world the skill and the might of the American Armed Forces.
