Example text

The answer to that paramount question may determine whether Bush’s legacy in Iraq was his greatest triumph or greatest failure. CONSTRUCTING HOMELAND SECURITY AND RECONSTRUCTING THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY The War on Terror fundamentally transformed the federal bureaucracy. Within a month of the 9/11 attacks, Bush used his executive prerogative and discretionary funds to found an Office of Homeland Security (OHS) within the Executive Office of the President (EOP). His appointment of former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge won early acclaim.

26 April: Marines in alHamdania shoot an Iraqi man and plant evidence, leading to charges of murder and conspiracy. 20 May: New Iraqi government fully assumes its functions for provisional government. 5 June: Two US SEABEEs are killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) near al Asad. 7 June: Islamist militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is killed in Baquba. 1 July: Sixty-six Iraqis are killed in violence in Sadr City, a slum of Baghdad. 9 July: Insurgent Shi’ites gun down 40 Sunnis in Baghdad. 18 July: Car bomb in Kufa kills 53 Iraqis.

And when Bush’s Attorney General Alberto Gonzales fired a host of federal attorneys, the administration invoked privilege and refused to cooperate with congressional inquiries. Bush also argued that his commander in chief role superseded the reach of Congress. In carrying out the War on Terror, the White House l • INTRODUCTION contended that it did not have to comply with the FISA Court, and authorized warrantless wiretaps. The president also posited that he had the authority to designate enemy combatants, independently set up military tribunals, and carry out enhanced interrogation techniques that critics charged were tantamount to torture.
