England, Canada, and Poland Today Pursuing Accountability for Roles in US War Crimes That US Shrugs Off

By davidswanson - Posted on 21 January 2011

Canada is investigating its war crimes in the US-led war on Afghanistan.

Poland is investigating its role in lawless US imprisonment and torture.

And Tony Blair is being questioned yet again in London about why exactly he parroted George W. Bush's Iraq War lies.

Meanwhile, Dick Cheney is thanking Obama for protecting him by rubbing his face in the dirt and shouting "You see, we did nothing wrong! Say it! Say it!"

Hey kidz!! Are Germans smarter than U.S. Military Advisors??? . . . ;-)

(clipped headline and article from Veterans Today)
"Twenty years after, Bush defends Gulf War as ‘moral;’ Record indicates Bush insisted on War and rejected peace - . . .

. . . Colin Powell, who served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under the elder Bush and secretary of state under George W. Bush, said the attacks on 9-11 'fundamentally changed the calculus by which you measure Saddam Hussein and what capabilities he might have.'"

(full story)

Yes, that's right, kidz . . . Good ol' Colin "See My Little Vial Of White Stuff?" Powell, our military "expert" who has had just as much time with the FACTS of 9-11 as everyone else went on MSNBC with Brian Williams yesterday and disgraced himself even further . . . if that is possible . . . by sticking with the "official" 9-11 story . . .

. . . and even throwing in a little innuendo that Sadam Hussein and Iraq had something to do with 9-11. . .

Of course, good ol' Darth Cheney was there to back him up:

(clipped text from above article)
"'From my perspective I looked at Saddam Hussein differently after 9-11 and before 9-11,' reiterated Dick Cheney, defense secretary during Gulf War I and vice president during Gulf War II. 'I was bound and determined as was the president for whom I worked, that that was never going to happen again on our watch.'"

Not one hint from either the military expert or the former Secretary of Defense that the "official" account of 9-11 may need to be revisited.

Meanwhile, the People of Germany have a "slightly" different view of the matter . . .

(clipped headline and article)
"Poll in Germany: 89.5% doubt official version of 9/11 - A recent poll in the German magazine 'Welt der Wunder' conducted by the well known Emnid Institute results in astonishing 89% of the German respondents not believing the official line 9/11."

(full story)

WOW!!! 89.5% of the German People agree with 1,420 Licensed Architects and Engineers . . .

. . . while apparently 0% of this distinguished "BushCo (ver. 1.0)" war criminal panel in this MSNBC interview do. . . ;-)

"Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth"

Hey, this ol' fool from North Cackilacki bets that the German People probably even know the difference between "Calculus" and "Statistics" . . . ;-)

"My skin got so thin
so you could see right through it,
and I stuttered, 'Well that's my story
and I'm stickin' t-t-to it.'
That's my story.
Well, that's my story.
I ain't got a witness,
And I can't prove it,
But that's my story
And I'm stickin' to it."
- "That's My Story" by Collin Raye
