Gawker Editor John Cook noticed the 43rd president’s email address on screengrabs published by a hacker named Guccifer, who previously messed up Colin Powell’s Facebook page and who plucked Bush’s shower self-portrait from emails she or he has hacked. He suggested readers use the address to “Wish George W. Bush a Happy Iraq War Day.”
A commenter named Janet Margrave was outraged by the breach: “To unleash people on him via a private email address, is wrong,” Margrave wrote. “Maybe the Secret Service will come tapping at your door.”
Another Iraq War figure stirred up commenters Tuesday: Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tweeted a commemoration of “the long, difficult work of liberating 25 mil Iraqis” that began a decade ago. Tweets replying to this sentiment go on for a while.
10 yrs ago began the long, difficult work of liberating 25 mil Iraqis. All who played a role in history deserve our respect & appreciation.
