Barack Obama Washington, Nov 3 (ANI): Former US President George W Bush has revealed in his memoir “Decision Points” that he still has “a sickening feeling” about the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

According to the BBC, Bush defends his decision to invade Iraq and argues that both America and the Iraqis are better off without former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, whom he calls a “homicidal dictator”.

However, he admits that he was shocked when no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, and added: “no one was more shocked and angry than I was when we didn’t find the weapons. I had a sickening feeling every time I thought about it. I still do.”

However, he has no comment on his successor in the White House, Barack Obama, the report said.

According to media outlets who obtained the autobiography, Bush focuses on details of 14 major events of his life and presidency, including the decision to stop drinking and his decisions following the attacks of 11 September 2001.

He admits he made mistakes when responding to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and describes how he felt “like the captain of a sinking ship” when the economic crisis escalated towards the end of his presidency in 2008. (ANI)
