4.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively meaningful, 21 Jan 2011
This review is from: Decision Points (Hardcover)
This book, for me, was somewhat of a relevation. I had always seen Bush as taking a simplistic, binary view of the world, leading to dramatic and painful consequences. What emerges is a thougtful, decisive, deeply religious man who took a clear view of his responsibilities to the American people in the light of the terrorist attacks of Sept 11th 2001. The book reads extremely well and gives a clear perspective on the rationale for both Afghanistan and Iraq. Whether you support those campaigns or not, this book gives a deep insight and for me - as a critic of the campaign in Iraq - made me reevaluate my position. There are a number of areas which did challenge me - particularly his blithe defence of waterboarding - but for anyone seeking a deep insight into the key events which have shaped the last decade, this book is indispensible.

sorry mate, this book is indeed a very good read, but far away from the reality that really shaped his decisions. it's in line with all the other propaganda the US is sending in into the world and as such is nothing new. the book is full of lies, read first "the war on thruth" by acclaimed author nafeez mosaddeq ahmed, then come back to me and tell me what u think. world politics is one big show evolving around one thing: world hegemony over oil rich areas with the aim to safeguard the national economies. bush led the US like a business, and in business you never put your real cards on the table for everyone to see. but i can imagine you start to sympathize with him after reading the book, it's very difficult not too. but remember the information given here is very well thought off and is aimed a readers like you who miss the necessary background to put everything in place. in fact, it's what 99,99% in the world probably holds for true. the US let 9/11 happen, and bush has thousands of murders on his conscience, simple as that. look for a video on youtube where he's asked, totally surprised, if he had advanced knowledge of 9/11, and you'll know what i mean. or better, read the book by ahmed. we live in a sick world, mate, and there's not much we can do about it. cheers.
