Books I Won’t Be Reading

Need I say more?

Well, okay, I’ll say a little. It comes out next Tuesday. Michiko Kakutani reviewed it in today’s NYT. The Washington Post reports that

Bush recounts being asked by the CIA whether it could proceed with waterboarding Mohammed, who Bush said was suspected of knowing about still-pending terrorist plots against the United States. Bush writes that his reply was “Damn right” and states that he would make the same decision again to save lives, according to a someone close to Bush who has read the book.

So if I have this right, Bush takes the opportunity in the book to proudly declare himself a war criminal. And he’s going to make money from the book, yes? ‘Nuff said.
