Guardian Weekly: The Bush Years

(A British assessment--an excellent reconstruction of the impact of the Bush presidency)

The Bush Years
Guardian Weekly

This podcast examines the presidency of George W Bush through the lens of its pivotal events: the controversial 2000 election, September 11 2001, the subsequent war on terror, Hurricane Katrina and the US government's response, and the collapse of the US economy.

These events are discussed by the journalists who covered them: Julian Borger, Guardian diplomatic editor; Jonathan Freedland, Guardian columnist; Suzanne Goldenberg, Guardian Washington correspondent; David Moats, editorial page editor of the Rutland Herald in Rutland, Vermont; Simon Tisdall, Guardian foreign affairs columnist; and Gary Younge, Guardian columnist.

It is a chance to look back before looking forward to the inauguration of Barack Obama on January 20.
