DALLAS (AP) Former President George W. Bush has remembered John F. Kennedy as a defender of liberty.
Bush on Friday released a statement honoring the slain president on the 50th anniversary of the assassination in Dallas.
Bush described 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.
