    When pundits are asked to name the best Presidents of the 20th Century Harry S. Truman's name always comes up. That is interesting because when he left office 56 years ago he had lower approval ratings than George W. Bush now has. Because he served only the unexpired term of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Truman was eligible to run for a full term. His own party told him, "Don't even think of it." He and incoming President Dwight D. Eisenhower didn't like each other. Compared with today's cordiality between President Bush and President-elect Barack H. Obama that transition was worse than a cold shower.

    How will history judge Bush? Many of us won't be alive when the first verdict is in. He has made his share of mistakes but one issue for which most of the public blames Bush derives from the belief that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. Retired Army Major General Jerry R. Curry, in spite of his exceptional achievements, military and academic, in his retirement has become partisan and, hence, controversial in some circles. However, his credibility seems strong.

    General Curry has said on that matter history will judge differently because US operatives found a large stockpile of concentrated natural uranium (550 tons) in the heart of Bagdad. This is known as "yellowcake" and is evidence that Saddam Hussein had a nuclear program designed to make weapons of mass destruction. US operatives had to sit on the information lest terrorists found out about it and tried to acquire the uranium.

    And there has been how much coverage of this in the media?

    When does Harry Truman's name come up when best presidents are concerned?

    People who like him can rightfully call him a "strong" president, but he doesn't usually score high in lists.
