OVERVIEW:

George W. Bush's Autobiography, Decision Points, has been described by critiques as "an attempt to write history before the historians get their hands on it" (Washington Post" and "Bush's attempt to write the history of his eight years in office before the professional historians do their worst" (The Independent).

Indeed, the self portrait provided by Bush himself is one of a noble public servant, who himself was a victim, if any "mistakes were made".

This landmark Critical Examination looks at the actual facts behind the Bush administration, and does so with the actual formerly classified and top secret words, writing and memos of himself and his administration. This Critical Examination undermines many of the key assertions in Bush's Decision Points and does so with newly declassified documents obtained by the Freedom of Information Act.

Key sections include:

The Bush Administration Secret War Justification Memo
The Bush Administration Secret Torture Memo
US State Department Secret Memo on “Problems” of Justifying War
UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Memo on Lack of Basis for War

This book also looks into Bush's record before taking office including:

George W. Bush’s Yale College Transcript with SAT Scores
George W. Bush’s Arrest and Criminal Record, Texas

Finally, this volumes assembles together a number of key reference and background materials including

The Constitution of the United States
The Bill of Rights
Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War

as well as Bush's key State of the Union Addresses.
