Bush had a 'sickening feeling' over WMD

3rd November 2010

Former US president George Bush reveals in his upcoming memoir that he had a 'sickening feeling' when he was informed there were no weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq.

The 64-year-old's memoir, titled Decision Points, is set to be published next week but has been obtained in advance by the New York Times.

In the book, Bush also reveals that he considered firing vice-president Dick Cheney after myths began to circulate over his power in the White House.

'He was seen as dark and heartless - the Darth Vader of the administration,' Bush writes.

The former president explains that he spent weeks deliberating whether or not to let Cheney go and replace him with senator Bill Frist of Tennessee before deciding against the idea.

When Bush's book is published, he will embark on a media tour to promote it, venturing back into the public arena after almost two years of silence.

Back in September, former UK prime minister Tony Blair was accused of plagiarising the film The Queen in his memoir A Journey.
