Bush speaks

No, not George W. This is George Sr. in a speech at Tufts University. Reported in the Times Online

The article says in part:

Drawing on his own experiences before and after the 1991 Gulf War, Mr Bush Sr said that the brief flowering of hope for Arab-Israeli relations a decade ago would never have happened if America had ignored the will of the United Nations.

Looking at some of the other reporting on the event, it appears that taking this statement alone and trying to turn it into evidence that Bush is a dove would be foolhardy.

In response to a group of loud protestors being removed from the lecture by police, Bush Sr. said "We've now found another real good reason to use duct tape.''
