When Bush Gets It Right

Regarding the shoot down of satellite USA 193:

Chilton attended the White House briefings where President George W. Bush was given the options and the odds, and he remembers Bush’s specific directive that if something could be done to mitigate the risk to human life, it had to be done. But what about the risk of people saying it’s really an antisatellite test, Chilton recalls asking the president. He says Bush responded, “I don’t care what people will say. We’re doing it for the right reason, and it’s transparent.”

That’s the right stuff George.
