Confirmed Liar and War Criminal

Josh Marshall has a piece up discussing the 60 minutes interview with Tyler Drumheller the now retired CIA officer and former head of covert ops in Europe.

This interview basically confirms what we have suspected. Bush and Cheney cherry picked the intel to falsely lead the country into war and when Drumheller's team in Europe turned the Iraqi Foreiegn Minister Naji Sabri just before the war and he admitted that Saddam had no WMD's the Whitehouse ignored this high value intelligence because it didn't support their lies.

This interview is proof conclusive that the President and his staff deliberately lied us into war and further more deliberately ignored reliable intelligence that would have allowed us to avoid this disaster.

Here is a quote from Josh's piece:

"I was stunned," Drumheller told me, when so little of the stuff he had told the commission's and the committee's investigators ended up in their reports. His colleagues, he said, were equally "in shock" that so little of what they related ended up in the reports either.

What Drumheller has to say adds quite a lot to our knowledge of what happened in the lead up to war. But what it shows even more clearly is that none of this stuff has yet been investigated by anyone whose principal goal is not covering for the White House.

Every death and every casualty is directly on Bush's head. Every penny spent is his. There is no other way to describe Bush and Cheney's acts but as high treason and war crimes. When you pile the torture, false imprisonment, and murder of so many together this is the only thing that answers.
