Lawrence Wilkerson, the former chief of staff of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, said Friday that former vice president Dick Cheney’s office misled his old boss with bogus information to sell the Iraq War to the American people. This talk with MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur Friday came in the wake of Iraqi defector Rafid Ahmed Alwan Al-Janabi nicknamed “Curveball” admitting he lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Raw Story

MSNBC talks about the above story:





Not like this is a shocker as most of the world knows that we were lied into the Iraq war. The admissions are finally coming in, albeit a decade later.

Here's a video of Powell and Rice in 2001 before 9/11, admitting that Iraq did not have, nor were producing WMD's:





And now here's Rumsfeld, Powell, Bush, etc. after 9/11 doing a 180 and exclaiming that Iraq all of a sudden is producing and has WMD's:





And finally, let us rewind about 30 years before 9/11. We go back in time to 1975 when Rumsfeld, Cheney and Wolfowitz are fighting to get us into a war with Russia, claiming Russia was amassing WMD's and that Russia was the immediate threat. Something that also turned out to be false:





Here you have two incidents, almost 30-years apart, with the same criminals in power trying the same WMD lies on two separate countries. But because of 9/11, these criminals got their war in Iraq. Everyone needs to know who never to vote into office again, nor anyone who is remotely associated with these criminals.

It's time to wake up and pay attention to what is going on in the world, and who's pulling the strings.

I can't believe it's taken me nearly Ten years for this logic to sink in: Why use planes when you have WMDs? Because you never had WMDs in the first place...

PS. Your thread should be a sticky for the whole Internet. Not joking.

Paul O'Neill, Bush's first Sec of the Treasury, wrote in his book that Bush and his cronies were planning the invasion of Iraq weeks after coming into office, long before 9/11 went down. And yet how many times did we hear, this is now a post 9/11 world, as justification for the war on terror. They knew the American people would never justify or approve of the real reasons for invading and had to present Iraq as a threat to national security.

Colin Powell also went on TV and said our Federal Government believes Taiwan belongs to China.

Meanwhile Obama's spending BILLIONS on the Marianas Military Training Complex/Guam Build Up for a "Strike Forward" military outpost to rip Taiwan from China.

Even Germany abandoned the "One China" policy and started selling military helicopters to Taiwan...early decommissioned almost ALL their submarines which are likely going to get sold to either Vietnam or Taiwan.

Colin lied.....to appease the Chinese.

Colin lied about the WMD's in Iraq as well.

Colin also committed a Felony when he went on Live National TV and said he uses his military retirement check to hire illegal immigrants to work on his house instead of Americans.

How much more of Colin Powell will the world take?

I honestly think the guy was totally duped. To his credit, he realized that later on. He was made a patsy out of. Yes, personally embarassing for him. but I think he tried to rectify his mistakes.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

The Soviets had a Biological Weapons program . So in that case Rumsfeld was correct at least to some degree . Do a bit of homework and don't get caught up in the heat of the Iraqi War debate .

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
