Time leaves Bush off their 100 most influential list

Time magazine’s new list of the world’s influential people is as unreliable as its news. Most surprisingly of all, the George W. Bush-haters at Time have left the current U.S. president off their list of 100 people who shape the world (May 14 cover story).

Included on the list, however, are Osama bin Laden and Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei, as well as Barak Obama, Hilary Clinton, Al Gore, and the leaders of various other countries. But not apparently of Israel. Ehud Olmert is excluded, whereas Israel’s ineffectual, perhaps soon to be sacked foreign minister Tzipi Livni is included.

Don’t go to Time for your foreign news.
