Ten Years Ago Today: War, War, War

It was ten years ago today when Colin Powell testified before the United Nations Security Council to appeal for their support for the invasion of Iraq.  I remember it so well.  I remember thinking the so-called “evidence” was pretty darn flimsy and that it was crazy to go to war based on what was presented.

But Powell insisted:

“Every statement I make today is backed up by sources,” solid sources. These are not assertions. What we are giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. The source was an eyewitness.”

Now we know that “solid source” was a liar who took the entire Bush administration, almost every single member of congress, the vast majority of Americans and the member-countries of the “coalition of the willing” for a ride.

Has to be one of the greatest tragedies the world has ever experienced.
