Britain Releases Secret File From Before Iraq War

The British government released a once-secret draft document on Monday that was drawn up to justify going to war in Iraq, succumbing to three years of pressure from freedom of information campaigners.The 32-page document, written by a former director of communications at the Foreign Office, cites intelligence sources to state that Iraq had stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons and could easily use them since it had done so before. Yet the document, amended in the margins, makes no mention of Saddam Hussein being capable of launching weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes, a false claim later used in another government dossier to make the case for going to war.
“Rape is a standard method of intimidation by the regime,” his document says. “The government personnel card produced here (picture) identifies its holder, Aziz Saleh Ahmed, as a ‘fighter in the popular army’ whose activity is ‘violation of women’s honour: in other words, he is a professional rapist.” A parenthetical note adds: (any more on these people? This is the ghastly single image of oppression we must get into people’s minds).”
A case for war made by a number of speech writers and propoganda hounds. This is the report from the UK. Don't think that our nation was any different.

A war based on lies must stop NOW!
