Former president George W. Bush is, as always, confident that the national security measures he implemented while in office were good for the country and history will prove it. It's just going to take the right historian to write about it.

"You know, ultimately history will judge the decisions that I made," Bush told CNN's Starting Point in a recent interview that airs Monday. "And I won't be around because it's going to take a while for the objective historians to show up. So I'm pretty comfortable with it. I did what I did. I know the spirit this much I did it."
