JS is a liberal puke - but good on him for not being critical of the painter, but of the paintings, which he obviously liked

Hagel, Senators, Congressmen, citizens were wrong in 2003. The Surge was a winning battle plan.

But CH was right in 2007 because the whole Iraq war was built on a complete lie, it was a complete waste.

Surge or no Surge in the end we lost to Iran, China, Russia in so many ways costing them all nothing-zer-000-$$ !

There were no WMD that needed an invasion to stop !

Whatever SH had he wasn't going to use them anymore-less than NK, Iran, Pakistan would.

Maybe that's what Hagel saw by 2007 but we didn't !

Was the Iraq war worth the cost, was it even our job to do, were the wrong methods used, all-out-war-instead-of 1st-taking Sadaam out of power,

then alot of persuasive-but-more-peaceful-properly-planned-out-strategies-action-methods !

I know, I know, that’s a horrendous headline but bear with me for a second. Ever since leaving public life, George W. Bush has kept a relatively low profile, presumably caring for his aged father and spending time with his family. (In truth, if I remember correctly, the former president made national headlines maybe once during the last election cycle). But because a deranged hacker essentially stole his emails and released them to the public, we now know a great deal more about 43 than we should ... including his penchant for the arts.

For those interested, you should...
