Former US President George W. Bush still believes the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was the right thing to do and has no regrets,
except that a "violent group of people have risen up again," he said in an interview with CBS News referring to ISIS.
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: We're fortunate to have men and women who work hard at the CIA.
Serving on our behalf. These are patriots.
And whatever the report says, if it diminishes their contribution to our country,
it is way off base...
These are good people, good people, and we're lucky as a nation to have them.
President Barack Obama traced the origins of Islamic State militants back to the presidency of George W. Bush and the invasion of Iraq back in 2003,
arguing that its growth was an 'unintended consequence' of the war.
