The UK investigates a possible international war crime while our GOP Congress conducts politically motivated investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of her email.
And if Hillary becomes President expect more smear campaign from the GOP because subverting the rule of law and the will of the people is all part of the ‘game’ for them.
Remember that if the GOP gave a damn about ethics it would have looked into The U.S. lead Invasion of Iraq, a decision that still compromises National Security.
Here are a few key findings of the UK’s Iraq War report:
“In November 2001, the JIC assessed that Iraq had played no role in the 9/11 attacks on the US and that practical co‑operation between Iraq and Al Qaida was “unlikely”. There was no “credible evidence of covert transfers of WMD‑related technology and expertise to terrorist groups”. It was possible that Iraq might use WMD in terrorist attacks, but only if the regime was under serious and imminent threat of collapse.”
“… After the invasion, the UK Government, including the intelligence community, was reluctant to admit, and to recognise publicly, the mounting evidence that there had been failings in the UK’s pre‑conflict collection, validation, analysis and presentation of intelligence on Iraq’s WMD.”
“In the Inquiry’s view, the diplomatic options had not at that stage [March 2003] been exhausted. Military action was therefore not a last resort.”
“The lack of evidence to support pre‑conflict claims about Iraq’s WMD challenged the credibility of the Government and the intelligence community, and the legitimacy of the war.”
“Mr Blair had been advised that an invasion of Iraq was expected to increase the threat to the UK and UK interests from Al Qaida and its affiliates.”
