On this morning's Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace interviewed former President George H.W. Bush at his Presidential Library in Texas. Bush defends his son's disastrous presidency, but later in the interview as he and Wallace stood in a mock up of a tent used by U.S. soldiers during the first Gulf War, he vehemently defended his decision not to march on to Baghdad in 1991.

While watching footage of news clips from the conflict, Poppy becomes emotional when he describes what he believes to be the most lasting images from the conflict -- the humane way in which the U.S. treated Iraqi prisoners.

Wallace: "The President remembered the courage and humanity of American soldiers and he grew emotional."

Bush: "My favorite picture is a picture of American soldiers surrounding a guy whose been in a foxhole, Iraqi soldier, and the American guy says, we're not going to harm you, we're American soldiers." (fights back tears)

Bush: "...See, that side of the war never got -- the fact that we treated those people with respect in spite of the fact they were the enemy, it's really good.

Sadly, Mr. Bush would now be considered a coward and a terrorist sympathizer by his own party for these views. Go ahead and let it out, sir -- the nation weeps with you for what your son has done in our name.
