George W. Bush has been branded the worst president in history and forced to endure accusations that he abused his power while presiding over a “lawless” administration.  STEPHEN KNOTT, professor of national security affairs at the United States Naval War College, contends that Bush has been treated unfairly, especially by presidential historians and the media.  In his book, Rush to Judgment: George W. Bush, the War on Terror, and His Critics, Knott argues that from the beginning, scholars abandoned any pretense of objectivity in their critiques and seemed unwilling to place Bush’s actions into a broader historical context.  A book signing will follow his Forum.
