Former president George W. Bush says his new presidential library is “a place to lay out facts,” not a forum to explain policies such as the war with Iraq or his administration’s handling of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath.
“There’s no need to defend myself,” Bush said in a phone interview with USA TODAY. “I did what I did and ultimately history will judge.”
If there’s no need to defend himself, then why would he bring it up unless he felt that there was a need to defend himself?
