The justification for going to war in Iraq thirteen years ago, was based on a 93-page classified document that allegedly contained “specific information” on former Iraqi leader President Saddam Hussein and the weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs he was apparently running. Now that document has been declassified and it reveals that there was virtually zero justification for the Iraq war. The document reveals that there was “no operational tie between Saddam and al Qaeda” and no WMD programs.
COMMENT from Todd Pierce Esquire:
I helped on a lawsuit last year against the officials responsible for the torture of Mohammad Jawad, a kid at the time. These cases against individuals no matter how heinous their acts are always dismissed on the grounds that the officials were “acting within the scope of their employment.” An updated and American version of the “I was just following orders;” the Nuremberg Defense. Which means we must unhesitatingly point out that our officials and judicial system have brought us down to the level of the Nazis and all other totalitarians.
