Presidency[edit | edit source]

2003 Iraq War[edit | edit source]

George Bush is best remembered for starting the 2003 invasion of Iraq under false pretences,[1] protecting the perpetrators of abuse and torture at Abu Ghraib and intensifying the invasion of Afghanistan.

By all metrics, he is a war criminal but he has never been tried as such.
