Bush And The Truth About His Crusades.

Olbermann has a look at the way Rumsfeld and others exploited Bush's deep religious beliefs to convince him to stick by his noble mission to "liberate Iraq" by the use of religious images on the front cover of defence reports, which Rumsfeld would also hand deliver to Bush.

I find it genuinely scary that these people were ever in charge of a nuclear arsenal. Surely Rumsfeld was cynically manipulating Bush by portraying US policy as somehow the work of God?

Could you imagine what would have happened had any of this become public during a war which Bush had already made the mistake of calling "a crusade"?

You can read the GQ report they are discussing here.
