Iraq: Five Years

Ron Suskind in a new book claims the CIA forged intelligence to get us into war (duh!), but this seems to be a confirmation of this. Suskind writes in "The Way of the World," to be published Tuesday, that the alleged forgery - adamantly denied by the White House - was designed to portray a false link between Hussein's regime and al Qaeda as a justification for the Iraq war.

The author also claims that the Bush administration had information from a top Iraqi intelligence official "that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq - intelligence they received in plenty of time to stop an invasion."

These three videos below of Iraq are disconcerting to say the least. The reporter, an Arabic reporter that appears to be British asks what has the surge accomplished and displays what life in Iraq is really like. It is unnerving to say the least. We should be embarrassed we lied our way into war and we have left human beings living like this and left with the memories of terror. We will be paying for this as long as I will be alive.

The Iraq dead and the toll on the Iraqis.

Iraqi children and the consequences of our war. When will this end?
