This paper argues that President Bush's decision to go to war against those responsible for the 9/11 attacks was a moral decision free from a personal agenda. The paper argues against the prevailing assumption that Bush did not did not make a "rational" decision via a rational process. The paper attempts to make the comparison between a rational process and the actions of our President without this underlying assumption.

From the Paper:

"Onlookers often assume that a man who has a firm mindset, and a strong will does not go through what onlookers would consider a "traditional decision making process." Men with strong minds, and a sense of moral right and wrong often take much more time considering a course of action than others who make decisions based on personal agendas. Men with moral mindsets are simply not easily persuaded once a new decision is firmly made on the basis of what the decision maker considers moral grounds. For the moral decision maker, the moral right and wrong of a situation dictate the course of action once the somewhat rigid boundaries are crossed. It is the moral absolutism which the on looking world does not understand."
