Following up a bit on the last post

Juan Cole deconstructs Bush's lies, distortions, and convenient amnesia in the "self-glorifying speech on his Middle East policy at the Saban Forum in Washington, DC."

At the end he writes this:
Bush turned the United States into an aggressor nation. He kicked off an orgy of violence in Iraq that has probably left a million dead. He destroyed entire cities. He left millions of widows and orphans, and millions more displaced. He lied, he destroyed habeas corpus at home and abroad, he tortured. It is too soon to know if American democracy will ever really recover from [this] lawless regime.
