Bush After 9/11 Says He Has No Regrets
A decade after the terrorist attacks that defined his presidency, George W. Bush said he doesn't regret any decisions he made after 9/11, including the war with Iraq and the use of controversial interrogation techniques that some considered torture.

snip

"Some of the tactics could have been different" in Iraq after Saddam Hussein was deposed, Bush said in an interview with USA TODAY. "Same with Afghanistan, same with the terrorist surveillance program" that eavesdropped on suspected terrorists' international communications.

some more bs, I mean, snip...

Bush said the events that led to the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May began during his administration.

"The work that was done by intelligence communities during my presidency was part of putting together the puzzle that enabled us to see the full picture of how bin Laden was communicating and eventually where he was hiding," he said. "It began the day after 9/11."

4. Because he did exactly what he was appointed to do.
Get the US to invade Iraq. Extra points for not generating a political shit-storm doing it. (9/11 helped a lot with that.)

2. of course he doesn't. What's to regret? He got his, and the people
who are really running things got theirs. From his perspective, it was a win-win TRIFECTA.

7. He is too stupid and out of touch to acknowledge an emotional response.
Has to keep up the lie for the history books.

And he has the unfailing lack of grace to now take credit for "the events led to the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden".

8. There is no evidence
that he has the capacity for regret.

9. To have regrets, a person needs a conscience, self awareness and a moral standard.
He has appetites, otherwise he's an empty shell.
