February 5, 2003, the United Nations Security Council. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell was giving a presentation.
“Saddam Hussein has chemical weapons,” Powell said, brandishing a small vial of a white powder of supposed anthrax. “About this amount … shut down the US Senate in the fall of 2001.”
“My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources — solid sources,” he concluded emphatically.
6 weeks later, the U.S. forces entered Bagdad and toppled the Iraqi government.
Yet the chemical weapons were nowhere to be found, nor was the Iraqi government’s link to al Qaeda and 911.
People only found Powell lied to the world at the UN.
America’s war against Iraq dragged on for nine years. More than 185,000 innocent Iraqi civilians were killed, and 2 million people had been displaced from their homes.
Also perished were over 4,400 US servicemen, during the operations of invasion and occupation of another sovereign country, illegally.
In 2005, Powell told ABC News that his UN speech was “painful” for him and a permanent “blot” on his record.
“I regret it. I will always regret it. It was a terrible mistake on all our parts and on the intelligence community,” Powell said. “The sourcing was inaccurate and wrong and in some cases deliberately misleading.”
Deliberate misleading. Indeed.
Who misled him, a relatively decent guy in the dark White House?
Apart from the ultra-neocon Vice President Dick Cheney, the following individuals all played pivotal roles in misleading the case and pushing America into the Iraqi war.
