Pentagon Papers Leaker Calls Iraq Invasion 'Supreme War Crime'


rawstory.com

The man who leaked secret documents about the US war in Vietnam has a name for the invasion of Iraq.

"Supreme war crime."

He also has appellations for President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney: "domestic enemies of the Constitution" and "war criminals."

Ellsberg leaked a sheaf of documents that would become known as the "Pentagon Papers" in 1971, a secret history of the war in Vietnam in which the Pentagon conceded the war was unlikely to be won.

The Vietnam War and The Iraq War have great differences and common traits.

Vietnam was primarily fought by drafted grunts while today in Iraq everyone is a volunteer.

However both were unwinable wars because of the native guerrilla type insurgency where anyone could be the enemy.

wiki: Pentagon Papers

Ellsberg is a hero because he exposed lies, deceit, and injustice. Some may call him a traitor. Not all secrets are bad, but our government has no right to lie to get into wars, or profit from them, or to lie to the citizens of the US.
