Jeb Bush: My Brother’s Response To 9/11 Was ‘Awe-Inspiring’


Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush has once again praised his brother’s actions following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, even though President George W. Bush’s actions resulted in the invasion of a sovereign country.













He called his brother’s leadership “awe-inspiring.”

“The case study of leadership is how George responded to 9/11, period, over and out,” Jeb Bush remarked to the audience of 175 donors and supporters at a Houston event. with George Bush at his side, according to The Hill.

“How he responded to 9/11,” Jeb Bush said of his brother, “was just awe-inspiring.

“People were united. And people really got it that he had a heart for them,” Bush said. “At that time, as you know, kids were crying. All around people, children and grandchildren didn’t know what was going on.”

“The whole world was turned upside down, and you had a president who was staid and sure and strong,” Jeb! added.

“And the idea that a candidate could think that they could make political hay to create a new … narrative on the reality on how he led is a joke.”

“It’s the unexpected that’s going to try Jeb when he’s the president and I’m absolutely confident that given his background and his steadiness that he’ll be able to deal with the unexpected in a way that Americans will be proud of,” George W. Bush said.

The unexpected cannot always be prevented, however, there were warnings. News reports since 2004 described in detail the frustrations intelligence officials had in trying to get the White House to focus on Osama Bin Ladin.

George W. Bush’s response was to invade the wrong country and that act of war resulted in the death of thousands of American troops.

In addition to that, a newly released Clinton email reveals that Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair reached a deal to invade Iraq nearly a year before the war began.

Just after the email was released, Tony Blair apologized for ‘mistakes’ he made with the Iraq war which caused the rise of ISIL.

In that interview with Blair, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria accused Blair of being President Bush’s ‘poodle’ over the conflict. And he’s not wrong.

We’re pleased that the Bushes have a close family relationship. It’s a shame the same can’t be said for those who lost their lives during Iraq War – Iraqis and Americans.

Please stop keeping us ‘safe.’ The body count is off the charts.
