MSNBC host Rachel Maddow charged Monday that the George W. Bush administration's Middle East policy has steered America's current security policy and response to global crises — including the one in Ukraine.

Talking about her new documentary, "Why We Did It," involving circumstances leading to the Iraq War, Maddow told MSNBC colleague Andrea Mitchell that the Bush administration is largely responsible for the nation's current course overseas.

“The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on," she told Mitchell. "And the American people are against those wars."

“Those are the determinative constraints for our thinking about everything,” she continued, “from Crimea, to Syria, to what the overall size of the U.S. military is.”

Maddow said her documentary concludes that if the United States is to avoid "these kind of protracted foreign occupations, like we did under the previous president, we can’t effectively make good decisions about that until we understand why we did that."

"We know the public case for why we went to Iraq was not true," Maddow said, adding that her findings for the documentary were "disturbing."

"It's getting at the question that needs to be answered," she said.

Mitchell, agreeing with Maddow's premise, noted that the Bush administration's policies impacted "every other decision we make — why the president decided not to go ahead with airstrikes against Bashar al-Assad on Labor Day weekend.”

“And that, some would argue, not me, but some of the critics are saying that has influenced the way foreign leaders and perhaps [Russian President Vladimir] Putin view [President Barack Obama],” Mitchell said.

Conservatives have lashed out at Obama for his response so far to the rising tensions in Ukraine, where Russian troops have a stranglehold on the Crimean peninsula.

Did you ever meet someone who was so stupid that it was actually painful to listen to them. I have. I just could not imagine that such stupidity could exist as a human. These people are so stupid that just being around them lowers you own I.Q.
 
The stupidity! It hurts, it hurts...
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

She is the liberal driving force behind much of what goes on over at MSNBC.

Umm  nope, Rachel.......... when this now expelled president was elected first it set off the "orange revolution" and he was expelled, he returned, ran and win in 2010.  OBAMA was president in 2010........... and still president as he was kicked out of office again for his lies to align the Ukraine with the EU instead of Russia were revealed and it caused the people to rise up again and expel him once again.
