Former President George W. Bush is attracting a flurry of renewed criticism after revelations surfaced this week that he charged a charity for severely wounded veterans of the so-called War on Terror $100,000 in speaking fees.

“Bush led the military into the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and failed to fund and prepare the Department of Veterans Affairs to care for those he sent to war,” Maggie Martin, Iraq veteran and organizer with Iraq Veterans Against the War, told Common Dreams. “It’s shameful that the former Commander in Chief would profit from funds intended to help struggling veterans.”
