The always in the know Mike Allen reports former President George W. Bush has settled on a format for his upcoming memoirs.  Allen reports that:

Making Richard Nixon’s Six Crises look like nothin!

Bush spoke in Canada, giving us a little taste of the torture apologetics to come:

“I want people to understand what it was like to sit in the Oval Office and have them come in and say, ‘We have captured Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’ — this mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, the alleged killer of a guy named Danny Pearl [who died] because he was simply Jewish — ‘and we think he has information on further attacks on the United States.’ I want to draw people in to that environment and let them determine what they would have done if their most important job was to protect the country.”

In the same appearance Bush claimed he’d be quiet about the Obama administration, but apparently “drawing comparisons” does not count as criticism.
