Bush Says ISIS Shows "Evil is Real"

Former President George W. Bush spoke at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Wednesday, and had strong opinions about Islamic terrorists.

“There is no light gray. Murdering innocent people to move their political point of view has been, is and always is evil,” said Bush.

The former president was asked in the question-and-answer session of the lecture about Charlie Hebdo and the Paris terrorist attacks. Bush compared the events to September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, warning about an "isolationist tendency" in the United States. “When the pressure is off, {terrorists] strike in order to frighten us who believe in freedom,” he said.

Bush explained that the U.S. should not withdraw from the Middle East. Even with the decreased dependency on foreign oil, for security and humanitarian reasons, he feels the U.S. should have a presence.

“Evil is real,” he tells the audience. Some praise him for calling evil what it is; others say Bush ought to know.
