the Man Who Sold Out America for $4.00 Oil

A Pentagon study released last year, based on a review of 600,000 Iraqi documents captured after the U.S.-led invasion, concluded that while Saddam supported militant Palestinian groups — the late terrorist Abu Nidal found refuge in Baghdad, at least until Saddam had him killed — the Iraqi security services had no “direct operational link” with al Qaida.


By investigation, however, it was found that the vast majority of Guantanamo detainees captured in 2001 and 2002 in Afghanistan and Pakistan were innocent citizens or low-level fighters of little intelligence value who were turned over to American officials for money or because of personal or political rivalries.

Vast majority.

The decision to withhold the documents was announced by the CIA, which said that it was obliged to do so by a 2003 executive order issued by former President George W. Bush prohibiting the release of materials that are the subject of lawsuits.

Our official policy was known to become the subject of lawsuits.

While allegedly being tortured by Egyptian authorities, Libi provided false information about Iraq’s links with al Qaida, which the Bush administration used despite doubts expressed by the DIA.

False information was used despite doubts expressed by the DIA.

The administration ignored warnings from experts in the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department, the Department of Energy and other agencies, and used false or exaggerated intelligence supplied by Iraqi exile groups and others to help make its case for the 2003 invasion.

Ignored warnings from its own experts.

A bipartisan Senate Armed Services Committee report in December traced the abuses at Abu Ghraib to the approval of the techniques by senior Bush administration officials, including former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.

Top officials approved of the humiliation of prisoners of war.

Cheney said that the Bush administration “moved decisively against the terrorists in their hideouts and their sanctuaries, and committed to using every asset to take down their networks.” The former vice president didn’t point out that Osama bin Laden and his chief lieutenant, Ayman al Zawahri, remain at large nearly eight years after 9-11 and that the Bush administration began diverting U.S. forces, intelligence assets, time and money to planning an invasion of Iraq before it finished the war in Afghanistan against al Qaida and the Taliban.

Resources were diverted from finding Osama towards invading Iraq.

A top-secret 2004 CIA inspector general’s investigation found no conclusive proof that information gained from aggressive interrogations helped thwart any “specific imminent attacks,” according to one of four top-secret Bush-era memos that the Justice Department released last month.

No proof interrogations kept America safe… they prolonged the war.

Bottom line…

Torture was sanctioned by Vice President Cheney so it could be used solely to offer credulity to the invasion of Iraq, where there was oil.

America invaded for oil… America tortured for oil, … Every dead American soldier coming back from Iraq, died for oil….

On Armed Forces Day, it would be wise to question whether our members of the American military deserve better.. As individual citizens of this great country, we must make sure that no other future leader misrepresents the American way and abuses our system for their own private gain, as did Dick Cheney

Now as private citizen, it is time that the articles of treason be filed on Dick Cheney, former Vice President of the United States…

After all, he is innocent until proven guilty, but at least the opportunity to hold him accountable, must be taken now. For if no one is ever held accountable, then what is to stop the madness from ever occurring again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and …..

Any person continuing to support private citizen Dick Cheney’s contention’s, should also be viewed as a suspect who is actively working against the best interests of all branches of the United States Armed Forces.

Happy Memorial Day.
