John Hawkins did an injustice to former President G.W Bush in this column and should be ashamed for that. He should apologize. GWB served the country valiantly and with great affection for the nation during his terms in office. He recognized the fact that we had an ongoing serious problem in the Middle East what with an unfinished 20th century war which provided opportunities for evil forces to plot internal physical harm to our nation undetected; and the territory in the region to train their army of terrorists. If Republicans in legislative office had supported him when he offered programs to help find solutions for the problems of immigration and social security, we could have avoided the quandary we now find ourselves in.
