Introduction

(born July 6, 1946, New Haven, Conn., U.S.) 43rd president of the United States (2001–09), who led his country's response to the terrorist September 11 attacks in 2001 and initiated the Iraq War in 2003. Narrowly winning the electoral college vote over Vice Pres. Al Gore in one of the closest and most controversial elections in American history, George W. Bushbecame the first person since Benjamin Harrison in 1888 to be elected president despite having lost the nationwide popular vote.

Commissioned a second lieutenant in July 1968, he became a certified fighter pilot in June 1970. In the fall of 1970, he applied for admission to the University of Texas law school but was rejected. Although Bush apparently missed at least eight months of duty between May 1972 and May 1973, he was granted an early discharge so that he could start Harvard business school in thefall of 1973. His spotty military record resurfaced as a campaign issue in both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.
After receiving his M.B.A. from Harvard in 1975, Bush returned to Midland, where he began working for a Bush family friend, an oil and gas attorney, and later started his own oil and gas firm. He married Laura Welch, a teacher and...
