OMG

The mind boggles. Bush, in Rwanda:
A clear lesson I learned in the museum was that outside forces that tend to divide people up inside their country are unbelievably counterproductive. In other words, people came from other countries — I guess you’d call them colonialists — and they pitted one group of people against another.
If only someone could have shown him a textbook on colonial history before now...

Yeah. I'll bet he never saw a history textbook in his life. It's not like the man majored in history in college or anything...

(I sometimes wonder if the folks in the Yale History department are ever embarrassed by the lack of education this particular high-profile alumn recieved in their department.)
