Former MI5 chief exposes the neo-cons’ Iraq War pretence
There was no evidence whatsoever that Iraq was involved in the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, the Iraq war was unjustified and it ‘significantly increased' the risk of Britain being subjected to a terrorist attack.
Wow, who’d ever have thought it! Well actually, quite a few of us who opposed the war did say so at the time.
You can read Robert Fox’s piece on Lady Manningham-Buller’s testimony at the Chilcot Inquiry, here.
Read it and you’ll understand why the neo-cons want ‘closure’ on Iraq and for everyone to ‘move on’. But remember, the same lies which were told about the ‘threat’ Saddam Hussein’s Iraq posed in 2003, are now being told about Iran (and the neocons are telling lies about Belarus too-another independent country they hate-as our friend and regular commenter Karl Naylor reports on his excellent Eastern Europe Watch website.)
