Vanity Fair: How the Bush Wars Opened the Door for ISIS

"It has been an unbelievable 25 years since George H. W. Bush started us on the adventure that still isnít over in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are American soldiers fighting and dying in the Middle East right now who werenít even born when Bush the Elder declared the Iraqi invasion and occupation of Kuwait to be an intolerable situation and sent roughly half a million Americans halfway around the world to reverse it."

2. But in Groundhog Day USA.

 

Jeb! is allowed to run for "president," and Hillary favorably invokes W in the last debate.

And the beat goes on.
