The Deceitful Bush Administration

In “The Case Against the Bush Administration,” George Soros presents a scathing critique of the Bush administration’s policies, particularly the Bush doctrine, which he argues has damaged America’s security and reputation. Soros believes that Bush’s administration hijacked the September 11 attacks to advance their own agenda and pass the Patriot Act, which infringes on American civil liberties. The Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq, which Soros calls a blunder, destabilized the Muslim world, threatened nascent open societies, and damaged America’s economy. Soros suggests that Bush’s economic policies, which favor the wealthy and increase the budget deficit, will ultimately throttle back the economy. Soros argues that American supremacy, which Bush’s administration seeks, is a bubble that will collapse if the American people continue to endorse Bush’s policies. Soros proposes that the American people throw the Bush administration out of office and return to a well-thought-out multilateral foreign policy. The U.S. should also be more active in devising a just and equitable approach to compensating countries for their natural resources, and in requiring companies to publish data on payments to resource-rich countries.
