    Invasion of Iraq: They Put the Lie to Their Own Propaganda

    Powell and BushAn Interview with John Pilger

    By ANTHONY ARNOVE

    John Pilger is a veteran journalist and documentary filmmaker. In a career that spans more than three decades, he has reported from the scenes of some of the U.S. government's most terrible war crimes--from Vietnam and Southeast Asia, to the frontline states attacked by apartheid South Africa, to Palestine and Iraq in the Middle East.

    In his new documentary, Breaking the Silence: Truth and Lies in the War on Terror, Pilger demolishes the case for going to war on Iraq as it was put forward by George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. In particular, Pilger uncovered videotape footage from 2001 of Secretary of State Colin Powell and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice admitting the truth--that Iraq wasn't a military threat and had not developed weapons of mass destruction since the first Gulf War a decade before. The documentary premiered on British television in September. Pilger's most recent book, The New Rulers of the World, is a collection of several essays that was updated and expanded to take up George W. Bush's "war on terror."

    War and Terror: Mobile lies

    Powell and BushBy Imad Khadduri

    As the swelter of anger bubbles from the machination of misinformation that led to the faltering WMD casus belli for invading Iraq, the retreat and half-baked excuses of Bush, Blair, Cheney, Wolfowitz and Powell further expose the sharp edge of their deceit. Whether it was "intelligence" failure or "flailing" the intelligence, time will soon tell. In the meantime, the fig leaves keep falling.

    During CNN's Late Edition with Colin Powell, reported by the Toronto Star on June 9, 2003, Powell claimed that "the two alleged mobile biological weapons labs, which are being studied by allied inspectors now in Iraq, are the same ones he described to the world last Feb. 5 at a U.N. presentation which was the result of four days and four nights of meetings with the CIA." "I stand behind that presentation," he said.

    War and Terror: Iraq's Hidden Weapons: From Allegation to Fact
    Tuesday, February 04 @ 17:10:14 UTC
    Powell and BushFAIR MEDIA ADVISORY

    While teams of U.N. experts scouring Iraq have yet to find any hidden caches of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons, some U.S. journalists seem to have already turned up their own smoking guns. Whether out of excess zeal or simple carelessness, the media's intensive coverage of the U.N. inspections has repeatedly glided from reporting the allegation that Iraq is hiding banned weapons materials to repeating it as a statement of fact.

    "The Bush administration is seeking to derail plans by the chief U.N. weapons inspector to issue another report," wrote the Washington Post's Colum Lynch (1/16/03), "fearing it could delay the U.S. timetable for an early confrontation over Iraq's banned weapons programs."

    Inside U.S.A.: Colin Powell: The Case of The Shrinking General
    Thursday, January 09 @ 01:22:15 UTC
    Powell and Bushby Ben Roberts

    Ask anyone in America what they think of Colin Powell as part of the Bush team, and for the most part you will get words of endorsement and support. The same is not the case for the other well known personalities who make up the Bush Administration. Even George Bush will say the same thing the average American would say about Powell. In fact Bush said as much when, a few months ago, he had a rare meeting with Powell during the height of a spate of violence between the Israelis and Palestinians, and asked him to go over there and use some of your political capital to calm and stabilize the situation. If anyone recalls, Powell at the time was balking at suggestions that he go to the region, and actually said there was little he could accomplish by going there. Then the heat from the American public got so hot on Bush for his bungling inaction in the face of such wanton violence and death in the region, that he ran out of the kitchen and begged Powell to put out the fire for him. Being the professional soldier that he is, Powell obediently complied with the wishes of his Commander in Chief.
