Defector admits to WMD lies that triggered Iraq war

• Man codenamed Curveball 'invented' tales of bioweapons
• Iraqi told lies to try to bring down Saddam Hussein regime
• Fabrications used by US as justification for invasion

 

The defector who convinced the White House that Iraq had a secret biological weapons programme has admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify the war.

Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed Curveball by German and American intelligence officials who dealt with his claims, has told the Guardian that he fabricated tales of mobile bioweapons trucks and clandestine factories in an attempt to bring down the Saddam Hussein regime, from which he had fled in 1995.

"Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right," he said. "They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime. I and my sons are proud of that and we are proud that we were the reason to give Iraq the margin of democracy."

Codename Curveball hey? Boy....did they ever pick a more fitting name right? I wonder how that democracy is working out for them over in Iraq after Saddam Hussein regime was toppled? It was simply replaced with a puppet regime.....the madness of it all.

Gumbaa?? Lol.

 

I wonder if history will remember this war the way we will? I am inclined to say yes, as our numbers are growing everyday, while the media loses sway over the collective consciousness; we tighten our grip around tyranny's throat.
