Professor Richard Dekmejian, who teaches political science at the University of Southern California (USC), was recently caught on video (below) slamming former President George W. Bush and his administration.
According to CampusReform.org, Dekmejian claimed former President Bush had “serious intellectual and mental problems.”
Dekmejian also added that Bush must have been “stupid or lying” to invade Iraq and claimed that Bush dodged the draft in younger days because he was “getting drunk and high.”
Former President Bush has admitted to having a drinking problem in the past, and the media have reported that Bush was "missing" for a period of time while in the Texas National Guard in the early 1970s, which Bush denied.
Dekmejian also alleged that Bush was “lazy for the first several months when he came into the presidency until 9/11" and failed to heed the warnings of counter-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke, who did warn the administration months before 9/11 of a possible terrorist attack.
The 20-minute secret video recording was made by USC student Tyler Talgo in 2012.
Dekmejian also said that members of the Bush administration, including Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, “lied” to the American people about the reason for invading Iraq. Powell and Rice did claim several times that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
“You have to use that term [lying] people,” Dekmejian stated. “Don’t use that term mislead.”
