Readers are clamouring to know more about the George W. Bush Foundation for the Advancement of Knowledge, cited in a previous blog. The CIA has released the following information courtesy of WikiLeaks.
The philosophy of the George W. Bush Foundation for the Advancement of Knowledge is summed up in its motto: “I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe – I believe what I believe is right.”
The Foundation is housed in the George W. Bush Presidential Library, currently at Lewisville, Texas, but on track to move to the campus of Southern Methodist University, Dallas, now that President Bush has joined the temperance movement.
The US$300 million and upwards needed to complete the new Library will be augmented by pledges from the “ownership society” and from tax cuts for the rich based on the theory of the Laugher curve.
The vision of the George W. Bush Foundation for the Advancement of Knowledge is to create a world that no longer misunderestimates the need for a market-driven approach to economic, social, and political policies. It has defined a biblical framework for its action plan based on Psalms 78: 66.
It is widely known that President Bush was on a mission from God when he launched the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. He revealed the extent of his religious fervour attending the Israeli-Palestinian summit at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, four months after the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
According to Nabil Shaath, Palestinian foreign minister at the time, Bush announced, “I am driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, ‘George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan’. And I did. And then God would tell me ‘George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq’. And I did.”
To avoid the need for further such one-to-one communication, the Foundation itself intends to draw up God’s plan for humankind. At first called “Shock and Awe”, but rechristened “Aw, shucks!”, it proposes increased instability and repression so that the US military can extend its humanitarian interventions to other parts of the world.
Finally, the Foundation has been inspired by the President’s pledge that, “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” It is planning the extraordinary rendition of weapons of mass destruction from Iraq (or Afghanistan, or Iran, or one of those other pesky African countries) to Kentucky so that they don’t have to make their own.
