Excellent post setfree, starred and flagged. I remember at the time, Benn's trip was considered by some here in the UK, as close to treason.
So many people have have forgotten the manipulation of public opinion at the time, prior to the war - the media talk of WMDs and the supposed Iraq
enrichment programme (sound familiar?). The dissenters were labelled 'sceptics' and belittled by the media. Blair and the White House stated that
Saddam was an international threat but one million dead Iraqi civilians put Blair and Bush in the same category.
All fuelled by 9/11. Stinking lies and murder on a grand scale.
