Jeb Bush: He Kept Us Safe

During the Republican National Convention Jeb Bush defending his brother George W. Bush stated “He is a man of integrity, courage and honor. And during incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe.”

Kurt Eichenwald, in an opinion peice for the New York Times disputes that:

While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed. In other words, the Aug. 6 document, for all of the controversy it provoked, is not nearly as shocking as the briefs that came before it.

Negligence? Until all the documents are declassified we’ll never know.
