More inspiring news about our leader from Raw Story: “Former Ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith is claiming President George W. Bush was unaware that there were two major sects of Islam just two months before the President ordered troops to invade Iraq.”

  • Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. Remember Bush’s infamous “World Leaders Pop Quiz”? (video)

  • Raw Story:

    Former Ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith is claiming President George W. Bush was unaware that there were two major sects of Islam just two months before the President ordered troops to invade Iraq, RAW STORY has learned.

    In his new book, The End of Iraq: How American Incompetence Created A War Without End, Galbraith, the son of the late economist John Kenneth Galbraith, claims that American leadership knew very little about the nature of Iraqi society and the problems it would face after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

    THE GOOD OIL DAYS

    President Bush softly sings.

    I Miss Arafat in the Springtime,
    I miss Sadaam in the fall,
    Lebanon‘s a mess, it‘s in splinters,
    I Had No Idea at All.
