Worth the price of the book to read one page...

I'm still waiting for my copy of the book, but got a teaser from Orrin Judd

As Fred Barnes details in his very fine book, George W. Bush is so fascinated by and admiring of the strike on Osirak in 1981 that when he visited Israel as a governor he asked if he could meet with the squadron that flew the mission and thanked them personally. Anyone who doesn't get that he'll launch similar strikes against Iran if they continue to develop nuclear weapons just hasn't been paying attention for the past seven years.

Good to know. The Osirak strike, by Israel on the reactor Saddam bought from the French, and intended to use to create nuclear fuel for bombs, was one of the most splendid feats of arms of our time. And it saved us from the nightmare of a nuclear-armed terror-supporting Saddam Hussein. We owe Israel a big debt, and I'm thrilled to read that President Bush knows it, and knew it back when he was just a governor, ignorant, as everyone has heard (ha ha) of foreign affairs...
