Eric Margolis, "Send Our War Criminals to the Hague Court", EricMargolis.com (06 July 2016)
By 2003, Eric Margolis had been covering Iraq for over 25 years, and he was sure at the time that Iraq had no WMDs, nor the means to make use of them even if it had any. And, as he says in this piece, he was "blacklisted" by the MSM for saying so. Well, this is Alt Media, so let's read what he has to say: the "faulty intelligence" narrative is a "lie"; the Iraq War was "as blatant and illegal an aggression as Hitler’s invasion of Poland in 1939."
And I just have to add: despite all the spin and counterspin, there's one phrase from the misty past that I simply cannot get out of my mind:
"But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."—Downing Street Memo
