If it were up to actor Mickey Rourke, he would exonerate President Bush for any wrongdoing during his tenure in office when it comes to the War on Terror.
"President Bush was in the wrong place at the wrong time, I don't know how anyone could have handled this situation," Rourke told Britain's GQ in the magazine's February issue.
Rourke said Bush wasn't given much of a choice but to respond to the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and that the War on Terror goes way beyond his presidency.
"It's too easy to blame everything on one guy," Rourke told the magazine. "These are unpredictable, dangerous times, and I don't think that anyone really knows quite what to do."
Rourke, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his performance in "The Wrestler," says that after 9/11 even he wanted to do something about terrorism.
