Presidential Medal of Freedom

The President today awarded the Medal of freedom to three key players in Iraq's liberation. There can be arguments for why each of these men should and shouldn't get this award but I see this as a bold statement that President Bush will continue to govern as he sees fit with the best advice from his advisors and in the best interests of the nation.

(AP) President Bush awarded the nation's highest civilian honor Tuesday to three men central to his Iraq policy, saying they had played "pivotal roles in great events."

Mr. Bush presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to retired Gen. Tommy Franks, who oversaw combat in Afghanistan and the initial invasion of Iraq, former CIA Director George Tenet and former Iraq administrator L. Paul Bremer.
