Bush planned to invade Iraq since 1999

Ghost writer goes public

George W. Bush's former biographer, Mickey Herskowitz, has made some interesting revelations in Common Dreams. Read the full article: Two Years Before 9/11, Candidate Bush was Already Talking Privately About Attacking Iraq.

The scary bits:
Herskowitz said that Bush expressed frustration at a lifetime as an underachiever in the shadow of an accomplished father. In aggressive military action, he saw the opportunity to emerge from his father's shadow.

"One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief."

"He [Bush] told me that as a leader, you can never admit to a mistake," Herskowitz said. "That was one of the keys to being a leader."

Thanks to Bob Harris from who's blog I found out about this.
