George H.W. Bush: The Inconvenient Truth

Description

U.S. media have been busy painting a very rosy picture of former president George H.W. Bush since his death last week. While he did stand up to the gun lobby, sign the Americans with Disabilities Act, and peacefully end the Cold War, he also ordered the Desert Storm operation in which 88,000 tons of U.S. bombs were dropped on Iraq, killing tens of thousands of Iraqis and destroying civilian infrastructure. The Intercept’s co-founder Glenn Greenwald joins Mehdi Hasan to discuss the difference between hagiography and journalism — and to produce a more accurate and fair obituary of the late former-president George H.W. Bush.

Slow down, man. Raising your voice, talking fast and making wise ass jokes do nothing for your arguments. I'd expect more serene, reasoned and fact-based debate. You spend more time saying bad things should be said --which I already know, otherwise I'd listen to mainstream media-- than actually saying those bad things about Bush sr.
