You can’t make this stuff up.
During my lifetime, I have experienced a number of big time war criminals—Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger—and George W. Bush is right up there with them.
He oversaw the murder of over two million Iraqis.
But few remember that. He’s an elder statesman now and that means he gets rolled out on occasion to regurgitate global elite propaganda. This usually includes some form of Orwellian doublespeak, as is the case below when Bush the Lesser appeared before the Atlantic Council.
Bush: "When we confront suffering, when we save lives, we breathe hope into the devastated populations, strengthen & stabilize societies, and make our country and the world safer." #ACAwards 12/ pic.twitter.com/ZL814iHcEO

The Atlantic Council serves as a hub for the most scurrilous of insiders, operatives, and quislings.
For instance, John Kerry, Susan Rice, Chuck Hagel, Brent Scowcroft, former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and the late Richard Holbrooke. It is funded by the US government and NATO.
After watching videos like the one above, you might begin to think criminals like George W. Bush actually believe invasions, torture, and depleted uranium “breathe hope into the devastated populations, strengthen and stabilize societies.”
It’s a special kind of mental illness.
