53. April Gillespie at the beginning, but let's not forget the denouement
And apologies up front for using a French word. But as the hostilities with Iraq were concluding, the brave U.S. forces strafed the retreating army repeatedly, killing thousands. Rather than take the time to capture surrendering troops, we bravely buried them alive with bulldozers. And then, when segments of the Iraqi population began thinking it was a good time to overthrow Saddam, Bush withdrew all forces, and bravely abandoned the popular uprising, allowing Saddam to brutally repress it. A lot of the survivors haven't forgotten how Bush the Elder double-crossed them.
