If the Republicans were hoping for a bombshell revelation from their
Benghazi inquisition, they sure got one. Except that it's about how
George W. Bush and Tony Blair conspired to con the world on their
predetermined invasion of Iraq in 2003.
It seems that among other things on Hillary Clinton's email server, she inherited former Secretary of State Colin Powell's email files. And tucked away in there was a memo for a secret summit documenting that Blair had some great PR ideas about how they were going to sell the war they were going to launch regardless. And this was all a full year before they broke all the pottery in stock at the Middle Eastern Pottery Barn.
This newly exposed Powell email dramatically confirms the historical evidence we already have, for example the Downing Street minutes which refer to how in Bush's mind war was inevitable, and that to achieve this end the "facts were being fixed around the policy." And there is so much more in the movie dramatizing the lying sales job that inserted us into this permanent quagmire.
If Wikileaks had released this email, the Republican banshees would be screaming for journalist blood. But the email was released pursuant to the court order they themselves had pushed for. Somewhere in the space of a couple hundred square feet Julian Assange is probably having a good laugh over this one right now.
Of course the British media is all over this. Have you seen anything in our own mainstream right wing water carrying media about it? Of course not. And this is why it is up to us as our duty to honor the true historical record, and to keep these truths alive.
Did you know we made an actual full length
feature dramatic film a couple years back, called The Last War Crime, all
about this wicked deception, and about indicting the Cheney war criminals.
Did you ever see the whole thing, or even any part of it? If not, you can
get the screener DVD from this page (8th gift selection down) for a
contribution of any amount you can afford right now:
The Last War Crime DVD screener:
getting a copy of The Last War Crime DVD, watching it, and encouraging
everyone else you know to do the same, you can help keep truth alive. For our part, we'll keep proclaiming the truth as long as there is one open ear to
listen. It's what we do around here as a full time job.
