Bush, in a Freudian slip, admits to illegality of Iraq invasion
The moment was a uniquely incriminating public Freudian slip.
Pioneer of the Iraq invasion George W. Bush has admitted to the illegality of the invasion in a uniquely incriminating public Freudian slip.
While discussing election integrity at an event taking place at the Geroge W. Bush Institute at the Southern Methodist University, Bush goes on an accusation rant stating every reason why he believes Russia isn't a democracy. Not only did he accidentally ascribe Iraq to Putin's "unjustified and brutal invasion," but also affirmed it, though seemingly jokingly.
He said, "Russian elections are rigged, political opponents are imprisoned otherwise eliminated from participating in the electoral process, the result is the absence of checks and balances in Russia and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq... I mean, of Ukraine, hehe. Iraq, too. Anyway..."
George W. Bush had a Freudian slip during an event in #Dallas, but he wasn't wrong after all: The invasion of #Iraq he ordered was truly brutal and unjustified.#GeorgeWBush pic.twitter.com/LjsAD3I7G7— Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) May 19, 2022
The war on Iraq caused devastation for not hundreds of thousands, but millions of people in the country and throughout the region. The US invasion of Iraq resulted in deaths, birth and genetic defects, and chronic diseases.
Here, we recall when Bush almost took a shoe to the head when Iraqi journalist, Muntazir Al-Zaidi, gave a symbolic retaliation for the atrocities he committed against the people of Iraq.
It’s the 10th yr anniversary of this legendary George bush shoe attack, the reflexes on display👌🏿 pic.twitter.com/T8wevY5rsF— Aden (@Hakerdenbbk) December 14, 2018
