George W. Bush says he sleeps `pretty well` and thinks his decision to invade Iraq was the right one

Former US President George W. Bush has said in a TV interview that he still feels "very comfortable” about the decision to invade Iraq, a decision that many refer to as the most controversial of his presidency.

The interview was dedicated to the forthcoming opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Texas. The event is expected to gather five living US presidents - President Barack Obama and ex-presidents Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.

The center is located on the territory of the campus of Southern Methodist University, where the Bush Institute has been functioning since 2009. The museum will feature the most critical periods of Geore W. Bush’s presidency, including the September 11 attacks, the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 financial crisis.

In the interview the former president said he hoped the museum would serve as a resource for historians to judge him based on the same facts he had access to as president.

"I think the removal of Saddam Hussein was the right decision for not only our own security but for giving people a chance to live in a free society,” George W. Bush said in response to a question about the invasion in Iraq. "But history will ultimately decide that, and I won't be around to see it,” he added.

Responding to a question if he had sleepless nights about the decisions he made as president, he said he slept "pretty well”.
