Geldof on Bush

Bob Geldof accompanied George Bush in Africa and came up with a fascinating article for TIME. Geldof loves what Bush has done in Africa, but reviles what he did in Iraq. Even so, he likes Bush personally, as do many who have met him. What’s interesting to me is that when I read this article and came to the parts Geldof had written about Iraq (Abu Ghraib,Guantanano, waterboarding…. the usual litany) I sensed Geldof didn’t really believe them himself. He felt he was supposed to believe them. See what you think.
