An Iraqi man whose testimony the United States used as a key evidence to build a case for war in Iraq says he is proud that he lied about his country developing mobile biological warfare labs.
The Guardian newspaper published an interview Wednesday with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, who has been identified as the informer called "Curveball," whose claims about weapon labs formed part of then-U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell's speech to the U.N. Security Council in 2003, shortly before the war began.
The Guardian quoted al-Janabi as saying: "I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime. I and my sons are proud of that."

Why is this not all over the news?!
The U.S news media barely challenged Powell's claims that day, with political pundits and columnists largely praising the former secretary of state's methodical performance. Of course, Powell's weapons evidence has been proven bogus in the years since the invasion.
CBS News first identified Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi as "Curveball" in a 2007 investigation of "one of the deadliest con jobs of our time." Although U.N. inspectors found no evidence to back up al-Janabi's claims of a biological weapons program, the Bush administration still relied on the bogus evidence to start a war that's led to over 100,000 deaths.

It isn't all over the news because the current administration, in concert with the mainstream media, has a vested interest in hiding from the public the fact that arabs (generally) and islamics (specifically), both individually and as a group, are evil, duplicitous, corrupt & murderous cretins who think about nothing but their own selfish interests.
these people have no loyalty to anything but their own self-aggrandizement, and the perpetuation of anti-human ideals. they are savages.
if left up to their own devices, outside of the control of civilized people, they would destroy the entire world and everything in it.

Pride is such a very strange thing.
I hope they execute him and his sons along with the treasonous idiots in the U.S. and Great Britain who swallowed and didn't vet these lies. And my choice of execution method would be to slowly rain white phosphorus down on them all.

facts, however, are undeniable.
arabs & islamic fascists are the single most problematic group in terms of a peaceful world civilization at this point in time. they are motivated only by hatred, destruction and death.
