I just watched a movie I received from Netflix called, “Official Secrets”, and I highly recommend it.  Official Secrets is a true story about a young lady who worked for British Intelligence during the period leading up to our disastrous war on Iraq to remove President Saddam Hussein from power.

President George W. Bush is/was a NeoCon and not a traditional Conservative.  He lied us into that war, claiming he had solid intelligence that Saddam had stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction (WMD).  Bush claimed Saddam planned to give his WMD to terror organizations if we didn’t go in and stop Saddam immediately.

The young Brit lady came across a cable from the United States National Security Agency that confirmed the U.S. was intent upon tricking the U.N Security Council into voting for the war.  Remember:  This is a true story!

The war in Iraq cost somewhere between 150,000 and 1 million Iraqi lives.  About 4,600 of our soldiers died and around 130,000 were wounded, many maimed for life.  It was all over a fat, George W. Bush lie.  As it turned out, Saddam never had any stockpiles of WMD.

In addition, that war took our attention away from the war our soldiers were fighting in Afghanistan, so the Afghan Taliban were able to regroup and resupply, which is why we’re still stuck in Afghanistan almost 20 years after we invaded to capture or kill those who planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

With Saddam removed from power, Iraq devolved into a second quagmire until President Obama took office.  Obama pulled most of our soldiers out of Iraq and that vacuum he left gave birth to one of the most vicious terrorist organizations we’ve ever had to fight:  ISIS.

Former President George W. Bush has innocent blood on his hands.  Lots of it; more than any serial killer in history, except perhaps Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao.
