Jeb Bush On Paris Attacks: ‘This Is The War Of Our Time’

November 13, 2015 6:24 p.m.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) reacted in real time to attacks in Paris late Friday on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show.

Bush called the attacks “the war of our time,” according to tweets from the conservative radio host. The presidential candidate also seized on the violence to criticize President Barack Obama’s policy in the Middle East, suggesting that withdrawing troops from Iraq “allowed the energy to form to create ISIS.”

A hostage situation at the site of one of the reported shootings was ongoing as Bush spoke with Hewitt and concrete information about exactly what happened was scarce. Officials were declining to speculate about who may be responsible for the violence.
