DALLAS (November 22, 2013) Former President George W. Bush released a statement Friday honoring President John F. Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of the assassination in Dallas.
In it he remembers Kennedy as a defender of liberty and describes the events of Nov. 22, 1963, as a "dark episode" in U.S. history.
The 43rd president says Kennedy dedicated himself to public service and "his example moved Americans to do more for our country."
Bush, who lives in Dallas, says the 35th president believed in the greatness of the United States and the righteousness of liberty, and defended both.
