Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all
(independent.co.uk)




A man whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow.

"Curveball", the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up. It was a confidence trick that changed the course of history, with Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi's lies used to justify the Iraq war.

He tries to defend his actions: "My main purpose was to topple the tyrant in Iraq because the longer this dictator remains in power, the more the Iraqi people will suffer from this regime's oppression."


Chalabi was just an expedient tool for the Bush admin. to get it's war, justified or not. He is now confessing the WMD's were a lie, a convenient way for him to get Saddam out of power, with America getting it's hands on Iraqi oil - and it's defense contractors getting rich(er) in the process. Total cost of that war is estimated at over three trillion dollars.

The True Cost of the Iraq War: $3 Trillion and Beyond

This guy wants his 15 min, thats all.

Remember Rumsfield saying "we know where the weapons are".

Remember Powell at the UN with his pictures of "undenialable evidence".

No, this was in the US Gov plans for a long time.

Regardless, this news would seemingly let the whole Bush administration off the hook. They have a fall guy now and were bamboozled into a war.

Yes, and now the Bush people can wipe their hands clean and face the new world with renewed energy because it was not their fault.. They were simply duped! And the current Govt can wash its hands of the whole mess as well. Stuff happens, yea.

OK now about Iran!

CRAP, ABSOLUTE BS I cannot tell you how p155ed off I am by this.
Lying theiving SOBS, Bush, Blair, Cheney you cowards you really are heartless, greedy murderers arent you.

This is just ANOTHER 'press release' take all responsibility away from the real criminals.

This guy lied, but they knew he lied they told him what to say.

This piece of crap didnt care about his name, or his image.

I guarantee you him, his family and his friends have all been promised multi million dollar deals, chateaus in France all sorts to go public and say 'we lied, the wars our fault''

ugggh ruined my day this BS has!


But Mr Janabi, speaking in a two-part series, Modern Spies, starting tomorrow on BBC2, says none of it was true. When it is put to him "we went to war in Iraq on a lie. And that lie was your lie", he simply replies: "Yes."


CRAP! one man and a lie doesnt send a nation to war!

Bush had nothing to do with it. The GERMANS made this guy. It was German Intel that told the Bush administration that Saddam definitely had WMD's and they had a guy who was rock solid proof of it.

Bush wanted this guy vetted before any war but German Intel said hell no. They also said hell no after the CIA and the Bush Administration were wanting this guy in the U.S. to testify.

The Germans have been protecting this guy ever since. They gave him a nice home in the German countryside as well. Normally any asset that would have been found to be lying would have been fed to the wolves, but he was not.

Also remember where all the 9/11 hijackers met before coming to the U.S.? Hamburg, GERMANY.

Watch these videos if you still think the Germans were not behind this and every conflict since.

BS of the magnitude you just posted should be considered a wmd itself.

Weapon of mass distortion.

Actually PR is spot on the mark.

If you do a little research on 'Curveball', it quickly becomes apparent how deeply German intel is involved in this.

Curveball himself admitted to fabricating the evidence in a effort to oust Hussain.


Unfortunately, as noble as Curveballs intentions were.....Two wrongs rarely ever make a right.

The german connection deflects from the american, british and israeli one. Germany as a nation is still under the heel of the US and Israel and should be counted as a lackey in this fiasco. Hell, look at the speech laws in germany. Who do they benefit? Look at the american bases there since ww2. The post I responded to seems like blatant deflection. That's all.

The longer the dictator was in power, the more they suffered.

Yeah, I am sure they are doing perfectly fine now. No suffering in Iraq these days.

To the contrary, it does when you don't bother to utilize intelligence.

The neocons may claim they were 'bamboozeld' by Chalabi, but we all know they pushed this guy to make his claims, they needed someone in the role of 'Iraqi insider' to make these claims stick. You can't tell me the intelligence community didn't know this guy's story was BS. The German intelligence said exactly that when they dealt with Chalabi.

This makes me so sick. We got the oil, and its not .99 cents yet again. This guy should have his wealth stripped, and be executed, after a brief trial. The whole world is a big scam sometmes. Im disgusted. Just kill everyone why dont they.. This guy ...

But we, (at least the U.S.) didn't get the Oil. Do a simple search, The largest contracts went to Chinese and Russian Oil Companies. While the U.S. companies do have some contracts, they basically got shut out of the auctions. A little research goes a long way.

Master Yoda, it's nice to hear from you again.

Cheer up, this is history. It cannot be revoked. Only learned from in hopes that it won't be repeated.

More importantly this was a business strategy that was achieved by infiltrating the
American political system. It cannot be overlooked by Americans if we want to
change this...

If you look at the business connections and the holdings, everything makes sense, from
Iraq to the financial collapse.

It was not this guy who stated there were WMD in Iraq. Ask David Kelly (oh we cant). It was MI6.

This IMO is just a psyop to get people to focus away from inteligence services, another mainstream psyop.

But we, (at least the U.S.) didn't get the Oil. .



If Iraq is successful in increasing capacity to its goal of 12 million barrels per day, this will help meet the demand for energy over the next decade and keep a lid on oil prices. (For related reading, see Unearth Profits in Oil Exploration and Production.)

The Players

Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) is involved in the re-development of the Iraqi oil fields, and is working on phase one of the West Qurna fields. Exxon Mobil plans eight new wells here in 2010, and the workover of 50 more to increase production. The current production at West Qurna is 244,000 barrels of oil per day, and the company has committed to increasing this output to 2.325 million barrels of oil per day.

Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A, RDS.B) is also involved in Iraq, and is partnering with Exxon Mobil at the West Qurna field. The company also won a concession at the Majnoon field.

At Majnoon, current production is 45,000 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day, and the company has plans to get production up to 175,000 BOE per day by 2012. Royal Dutch Shell believes that the Majnoon field has the potential to produce 1.8 million barrels per day by 2017.

Eni SpA (NYSE:E) was awarded the concession at the Zubair Field, along with Occidental Petroleum (NYSE:OXY). The baseline production at this field was set at 182,000 barrels per day, and the companies expect to increase gross production to 1.2 million barrels per day in 7 years. The companies are planning on having 150 employees in the country by the end of 2010.

The Zubair field is located in Southern Iraq, and started producing in 1951. Eni estimates that only 7% of the original oil in place has been produced to date. The company plans to drill 46 new wells and 100 walkovers from 2011 to 2013 to get production moving higher.

CNOOC Ltd. (NYSE:CEO) just finalized an agreement with the Iraqi government to develop the Missan Oil Field in the southern part of the country. The Chinese oil company has agreed to increase production here to 450,000 barrels per day within six years from the current level of approximately 100,000 barrels per day.

The Iraqi goal of increasing oil production capacity to 12 million barrels per day may seem like a dream to some, but Iraq and its foreign partners are not wasting any time getting started. The success of this endeavor will have a large impact on future oil prices

iraqproject.com... Because of the outcry concerning war for oil they decided to wait a minute... minute is up... Oil and gas investments are expected to increase by 24% in 2012

Also:

Halliburton earned, according to MSN Money, Halliburton’s KBR, Inc. division earned $17.2 billion in Iraq war-related revenue from 2003-2006 alone.

The Washington Group International has parlayed its expertise the repair, restore, and maintenance of high-output oil fields into $931 million in Iraq-related revenue from 2003-2006.

Perini (controlled by financier Richard Blum) is one of the more controversial companies to have scored big-time Iraq war money. That’s because Blum’s wife, Senator Dianne Feinstein, appears to have used her seat on the Military Construction Appropriations subcomittee to steer the $650 million environmental cleanup deal in his favor.

Another widely disparaged, Blum-controlled company that has profited from Iraq is URS Corporation. Long known as one of the nation’s major defense contractors, San Francisco-based URS has collected $792 million in environmental cleanup fees in Iraq war zones.

Parsons, who reportedly mismanaged the construction a police academy so poorly that human waste dripped from its ceilings. Far from being an isolated incident, reports from federal government auditors revealed lackluster work on 13 of the 14 Iraq projects entrusted to Parsons. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped the Pasedena-based firm from making off with $540 million in U.S. government funds for the poorly executed reconstruction projects at Iraq’s healthcare centers and fire stations.

“This is the lens through which Iraqis will now see America,” lamented Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) said. “Incompetence. Profiteering. Arrogance. And human waste oozing out of ceilings as a result.”

AM General (a subsidiary of Renco) is another company that has seen its revenue sail toward the heavens since the beginning of combat in Iraq. The renowned maker of extra-wide all terrain vehicles (shown below) has seen its Pentagon revenues soar by 92%, a phenomenal leap for any business. This placed Renco sixth in a 2005 analysis of the fastest growing contractors by dollar amount, and sixth in an analysis of fastest growing contractors by percentage. Growing hostilities prior to the Bush Administration’s “surge” strategy in 2007 helped fuel the sudden demand
