In the age of bailouts, George Bush's bailout of Islam after 9/11/01 will be the costliest bailout in U.S. history. Shortly after the attacks, Bush was in a mosque, flanked by members of the stealth jihadist group CAIR (who somehow held straight faces without cackling) and uttered "Islam is peace".
In the moment of truth, he lied. To himself, to us, to the world, about the true nature of what we were facing, and our response to 9/11 was predicated on that lie, which crippled our war effort from the start.

He squandered the green light he got from the majority of Americans to end the threat once and for all, "responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."
This is why I refer to him as:
