There was no "single reason" for the Iraq war nor was it based on any single lie - just like GHW's war in Iraq and the incubator babies. I'm afraid we'd have to go back 30+ years to when Sr. was Vice President making backroom deals with the Contras, Noriega, Nugen Hand Bank, Cocaine trafficers and Iranian weapon dealers.
Because the Tower Commission was a joke and never went after the real Iran/Contra criminals Bill Clinton got to slide when he upped the ante by massacring Americans in Waco Texas and ostensibly OKC. Kosovo, the aspririn factory bombing, the murder of political liabilities like Ron Brown all can be laid at his feet. Each administration has just continued along the same path of lawlessness knowing full well that each party would cover for the other while putting on a show for the American people.
Our government went terribly wrong some time ago and for the last 30 years have wallowed in illegal activity.
How do you even begin to undo the wrongs and do justice to the victims covering that amount of time?

Unfortunately, there actually are Untouchables in the world and those are 2 of them. They will never be held responsible for their actions, because they can drag an entire government down with them. Bush Jr and Cheney are beyond the reach of Justice.

They belong at the bottom of the ocean with a brick tied to their ankle as a show of respect like with Bin Laden ... Who needs a trial when you can throw the evidence in the sea right ? Due process pfffft , what do you think this is 1950's America ?

As each year passes, the memories of the Iraq War fade, but one fact still rings true: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney lied to the American people about their reasons for invading. I am ready to put them on trial once and for all, but the reasons I believe they should see their day in court may surprise you. Do you think Bush and Cheney belong behind bars?
