Treason is when you actively work against your country, or try to aid its enemies.
Whatever else Bush was, he wasn't a traitor. I don't think he was as good a statesman as his father; but he wasn't guilty of treason.
Then what would you call lying to the American people in a way that resulted in Thousands of American deaths (to say nothing of the Iraqi deaths)?
I don't agree that there were deliberate lies coming from the White House.
Now, I WILL say, I think Bush made a mistake & dropped the ball in Afghanistan.. THEY were the ones harboring the terrorists who attacked us, and they should have been Bush's main focus. I think Bush sidelined the war effort & went into Iraq too soon -- and the campaign in Afghanistan suffered as a result.
In hindsight, we know know Iraq was not as imminent a threat, and the US could
really have made some inroads as a LEADER in that region, if we'd followed a slower timetable in Iraq.
Instead... we ticked off a lot of influential potential allies... and we let the 'big bad', Osama, get away.
But these are the strategic decisions of a Commander In Chief... who, when, & how to deploy -- And WHY... It was within his power
to choose the way he did. I don't agree
with the way he ran things, but I still don't see where he is guilty of treason.
