A FORTUITOUS MEETING:
I had just
entered the lobby of a Washington hotel to attend a conference when I
bumped into an attractive lady who looked up and smiled in pleasant
surprise. “You are Paul! Aren't
you? Pat always said that your assistance and
counsel made possible the recovery of our business from a very
Our conversation continued as
we moved to a quiet corner dining room table.
“Pat had a fatal accident about ten years ago,” she muttered.
“Our friends were most
supportive and considerate but were constant reminders of our
loss. At my son's insistence, we sold the business and moved
here, thinking it to be glamorous and active. We
leased adjoining suites here and live respectful lives.”
representatives in Congress have been most helpful and have introduced
us to Society. My son is quite contented,” she
continued, “but the glamor I had hoped to find is not
here. A good man in this town is hard to find. Most
of them easily fit the label of dull. “The only man to whom I
have been introduced that was even slightly exciting was a well
positioned confidant, adviser and friend of the President.
“He was, like I, also bored
with Washington. We became confidants and friends.
“One night, while bemoaning the constant media criticism of his friend,
he said, 'if they knew how successfully his strategy is accomplishing
its objectives they still would not give him one ounce of credit.
you would keep confidential notes on developments as they
occur. If something should happen to me, you will know the
correct time for the release of the information. If asked, Bush will no
doubt just smile. A super poker player never divulges his strategy or
the way he plays the game. He smiles whether winning or
losing. It pleases his friends, and upsets his
enemies. That smile is part of his winning game plan'.
“My erstwhile companion,” she
continued, “is no longer with the Government and has been out
of town for a while. The information, he outlined to me
regarding President Bush's strategy, is being proven correct as the
enemy is being vanquished..
“I have wished to find someone I could trust to share the
responsibility. Then we meet just as I again need
your help. I recall Pat saying, 'if ever you need advice or
assistance go to Paul.' I will tell you what I know
and give you my tapes and notes. If accepted, you
will have the responsibility.
“For proper presentation purpose and background – of which of
course you are completely aware -- the Terrorists hit us several times
– the embassies, the troops, the truck bomb ing of the NY
Financial Center, the Cole and other attacks upon our citizens and
friends. They had accomplished all that without any of our
“Then they hatched a new
strategy that would get the attention of all. From their
standpoint it was an innovation that was outstanding in its originality
and execution. The 911 attacks were acts of war
that could not and should not be almost overlooked as other acts of al
Qaeda and others had been.
“Our TV screens displayed Ben
Laden laughing and applauding as he heard the news.
He made a joke that some of his men didn't know they were on
“President George W. Bush
recognized, as no other recent previous president had, that these
attacks were acts of War. The Terrorists had declared war on
us and any Nation supporting them was henceforth also an
enemy. He irrevocably declared we are pursuing the
Terrorists, wherever they may be.
“The United Nations and the
Government of Afghanistan joined forces in an effort to eliminate the
terrorists in that country and stabilize its existence.
Hussein was then loudly proclaiming his hatred for the USA,
He began preparing training camps and invited terrorists to
“The Congress of the
USA voted a declaration of war against Iraq. The vote was
based on conditions as then existed and all those voting had the
identical intelligence information. The problem at the time of the vote
was locating and eliminating Terrorists. Hussein was well
into aiding and abetting terrorists and had to be
politicians, however, later flip-flopped and claimed that they had
voted for the War because of reports that Iraq was acquiring material
remember it being alleged that Saddam Hussein was looking for materials
for WMD manufacture but little indication that he had
any. Development of that capability would take
years and not warrant a rushed invasion. Anyone who would
vote for immediate war action to eliminate that condition should
definitely not be in Congress.
As Commander in Chief, Bush must be given credit for commanding the
swift moving engagement that gained rapid victory and little causality
while defeating our most vocal enemy’s forces. On the very
first day of the conflict the Enemy’s powerful armored force of tanks
and mobile artillery were blown apart by heavy bombers of the US Air
Force and the enemy ground forces were neutralized by Navy and Air
Force tactical bombers.
The fear of Bush’s rapid coordinated conquest of Iraq resulted in
another victory without firing one shot. Libya gave
up completely, paid in full their assessed obligation for the Pan
American Air disaster and handed USA all their nuclear facilities and
Detractors claim that after the quick victory the administration of
Iraq was not properly handled. According these Media
“Authorities” George, the Commander in Chief and his troops were
amateurs at the game and all is wrong – bring them home.
BUSH’S STRATEGY was to form secure areas (Forts) as bases of
operations for our troops and the Iraqi Government. Do not
unnecessarily risk life or limb of our coalition or Iraqi
be many problems outside of those protected zones – most of which will
cure themselves or prepare the people there for cooperation when Iraqi
military is armed and prepared to join their fight.
we appear to be suffering a slow defeat, the more our enemies will
increase their bets in Iraq and reduce activities in USA and
elsewhere. Stay the course -- many different
circumstances will aid our cause while certain time consuming objec
tives are being achieved.
Bush was acting on lessons learned in HBS classes and the off campus
poker tables where he was a recognized and seasoned winner.
He recognized that it would take time for an effective government to be
formed and Army and Police, loyal to the government, to be recruited
and trained. Terrorist were moving in growing numbers into
and taking over various sections of Iraq vividly demonstrated with
threats, murders and bombing that they were not interested in the
children or their schools, business, or proper distribution of food and
other merchandise. Terrorists were making lives unbearable which
created major reasons for the people to unite and prevail.
The influx of foreign Terrorists further demonstrated to the Iraqi
people the need to harmonize their own internal conflicts if peace and
hope were to be achieved in Iraq. It takes time for them to
learn to identify friends from enemy and begin to trust and work with
their own newly formed Government and the Coalition Forces.
“Bush knew,” the lady continued, “from his Poker experience [a part of
the extra curricular education process in Harvard] that the treasonous
statements of his political opponents and anti -war critics would
encourage terrorists from Afghanistan and all over the world
to join the campaign to take over the whole of Iraq and kick USA
“Very soon George W's enemies, at home and abroad, were synchronized in
their cheering the Terrorists forward. As Bush
repeated "stay the course.” Terrorist's pressure was off USA,
Europe, Afghanistan, Israel and elsewhere as they moved to defeat USA.
“Most all other objec tives of al Qaeda were put on hold as they
increased their bets against the USA in Iraq." To Bush it was
like being back in the school "sponsored" game -- smiling with a pat
hand while the other players upped their bets convinced -- that he’s
bluffing! The terrorists and manipulators were increasing
their bets -- encouraged by statements and actions of Bush’s enemies
and “friendly enemies”.
“Even our President could not decide which force was contributing the
most to his strategic plans. Was it the Enemies with their
claims of victory or the “Friendly Enemies” with their treasonous
declarations of defeat? They were all now virtually united as
one, loudly proclaiming their similar message -- defeated -- retreat
(take/bring) the troops home.
The Iraqi Government and its people were becoming more organized and
were recognizing their enemy. The Iraqi Army was gaining
strength in numbers, ability and equipment. Though,
the enemy was still holding large sections of Iraq.
George W. had previously prepared for this eventuality with a top
secret order to the military to organize and indoctrinate 40,000 troops
for rapid over seas deployment. A new General was
selected and told to study the Iraqi situation for the victory
surge. A few months after these secret orders were dispatched
It was time for the poker shark to finish the game.
The surge was announced!
The military was ordered to raise the ante in Iraq by 30,000
troops. The new General was given the chore of collecting
George’s bets, (the elimination of terrorists).
The opposition (both enemy and “friendly enemy”) yelled, "It won't
work. You have been defeated." The terrorists, thus
encouraged, hurried more forces into Iraq. Congressional clamoring, to
cut off funds to stop the deployment of troops was good news and just
another positive move for George. The enemy will think we
have lost our will and up the ante while our troops get into
position. His Poker Strategy was working in the war
as in peace.
Bush’s remarks to the General are here paraphrased:
Most of the enemy's available forces are in our sights. We
can eliminate a high percentage of them. Close the Iraqi
borders so they can’t escape. We can now defeat the
enemy. A functioning Iraqi Government will now have control
of their Nation. Afghanistan will be easier for my
Bush will still have his USA detractors. He is well aware of
the lot of a master poker player and has learned to enjoy the criticism
as a complement and honor to the winner of a well played game against
the efforts of worthy and unworthy opponents. I hope George
will forgive me for divulging his game plan but that’s my game.
It was amazing how thoroughly the lady had organized her
thoughts on the subject. Following our discussion,
she went to her room and returned with a tape that was almost an exact
reproduction of her talk, Detailed notes on the subject and
an article by a reputable authority supporting her statements from
which I have extracted the quotes below.
Following are direct approved quotes from an article
published February 3, 2004 by Thomas Lifson, Harvard B. S. professor,
and now editor and publisher of “The American
BACKGROUND OF THE GEORGE BUSH WAR STRATEGY
"The comparatively small amount of attention paid by the political
press to the President's Harvard MBA partially reflects a generalized
ignorance of, and hostility toward, the degree itself.
“More importantly, acknowledging that he learned any valuable
intellectual perspectives would contradict the storyline that young W
was a party animal, who coasted through his elite education, scarcely
cracking a book.
"This is patently incorrect. Having attended Harvard Business
School at the same time as the President ... I am intimately
familiar with the rigors of the program at the time and the minuscule
degree of slack cut for even the most well-connected students, when
their performance did not make the grade.
"There is simply no way on earth that the son of the then Ambassador to
China ... or anyone else, could have coasted through Harvard Business
School with a 'gentleman's C'.The academic standards were a point of
"Accepting the premise that George W. Bush actually learned the lessons
taught him at Harvard Business School, there are a number of
characteristics of his administration which become far more
"The very first lesson drummed into new students, as they file into
classrooms of Aldrich Hall, is that management consists of
decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. There is
never perfect information, and decisions often have to be made even
when you'd really prefer to know a lot more. ...
"A second broad and important lesson the President learned at Harvard
Business School is to embrace a finite number of strategic goals, and
to make each one of these goals serve as many desirable ends as
“These goals should be mutually consistent, so that the step-by-step
of each one aids in the achievement of the others.
"One final note on George W. Bush's management style and his Harvard
Business School background does not derive from the classroom, per
se. One feature of life there is that a subculture of poker
players exists. Poker is a natural fit with the inclinations,
talents, and skills of many future entrepreneurs. A close
reading of the odds, combined with the ability to out-psych the
opposition, leads to capital accumulation in many fields, aside from
the poker table.
"There was both evidence and logic to suggest that George W. Bush has
chosen just a handful of major goals. His current number one
priority was thrust upon him, winning a complete victory in the war on
"By reputation, the President was a very avid and skillful poker player
when he was an MBA student. One of the secrets of a
successful poker player is to encourage your opponent to bet a lot of
chips on a losing hand. This is a pattern of behavior one
sees repeatedly in George W. Bush's political career. He is
not one to loudly proclaim his strengths at the beginning of a
campaign. Instead, he bides his time, does not respond
forcefully, at least at first, to critiques from his enemies, no matter
how loud and annoying they get. If anything, this apparent
passivity only goads them into making their case more
Thomas Lifson, Editor and Publisher of The American
In a poker game a player, following the W. Bush pattern, may appear
like he is playing the game wrong. He will bet high on a
terribly poor hand and then when the last player checks out and he has
won the pot he will show his hand which has not even one
pair. He may establish this position of bluffing or
not understanding the game in several different ways and then when the
stakes get higher he will go for the high stakes pot. All are
sure he is bluffing and raise their bets then after all have piled
their chips in the pot, his pat hand wins.
All the other players will hate him but that is the lot of a successful
poker player. It's a lesson that is learned over and over
again in the games of Harvard. His well polished skills at this part of
the Business School experience are note worthy clues into the W. Bush
Bush's job as he saw and practice it was to promote and protect the
interests of the people of the USA. His tactics and actions
were not to the liking of everyone but have now been proven
to be successful.
George W. Bush, Commander in Chief, was in charge of
the Iraq war and it has now been proven that his
