Yet another BushCo Scandal: No WMDs in Trailers & Powell FINALLY 'Fesses Up
Pix courtesy of IconoclastCA. Please read Robert Scheer's "Now Powell Tells Us" at TruthDig if you want to feel queasy. So NOW Colin Powell is confessing that he knew that all along that he was taking part in the BushCo aiding and abetting of lying the US into the Iraq War? Well, what should we expect from a soldier who 1st captured attention by trying to cover up the My Lai massacre in Vietnam?. Except it’s even worse: The NIE & uranium weren't the only things they knowingly lied about (via WaPo): On 5/29/03, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, 2 small trailers captured by US & Kurdish troops turned out to be a long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." Bush declared: "We have found the WMDs." The claim, repeated by top admin officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, US intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true. A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to the WH in a field report on 5/27/03, 2 days before the prez's statement." Those like Powell who sat back and w/held the truth from the public are as guilty as Bush & Cheney. The whole putrid lot of 'em should be behind bars. They are all responsible for the obscene slaughter & maimings of 10s of 1000s of Iraqis & US troops. That can never be excused or forgiven. The whole stinking bunch are internatl war criminals and should be dealt w/accordingly.
