The latest Senate Intelligence Committee report – release delayed until after the mid-term elections! - concluded that Hussein had no connection to Bin Laden and the 9/11 attacks. This finding, coupled with the absence of any WMD’s should put to rest the bogus attempts of the Bush administration to justify the war on Iraq. The American people were deliberately misled by an administration determined to establish its unwelcome presence in the Middle East and steal its precious oil resources. Sadly our lawmakers and a compliant media allowed this massive fraud to be perpetrated. CIA intelligence reports were ignored and opposition deemed ‘unpatriotic’.
The only proper course of action is for US troops to withdraw from Iraq immediately, extend an unconditional apology to the Iraqi people and offer payment of reparations for the ‘shock and awe’ destruction of their infrastructure and the killing of so many of their people. Bush and his gang of neocons should be removed from office for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’. A staggering number of Iraqis and US soldiers are dying each week. ‘Staying the course’ is no longer an option! I urge readers to obtain a copy of ‘HUBRIS: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War by journalists Michael Isikoff of Newsweek and David Corn of The Nation, which described in detail the White House shenanigans in the run-up to the Iraq War.
