In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

90 new claims of abuse

UK troops face 90 new claims of abuse in Iraq

A special unit of military investigators and former detectives is to look into complaints of ill-treatment

31 October 2010 - A specialist team appointed by the government to investigate claims of abuse by British troops in Iraq has received 90 complaints involving 128 Iraqi civilians. The files, relating to allegations between March 2003 and July 2009, have been sent to Geoff White, a former head of Staffordshire CID, who heads the Iraq historic allegations team.

The unit, the creation of which was announced in March, comprises 80 staff including military investigators and former Scotland Yard homicide detectives. A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "The team is investigating all alleged cases of abuse by UK service personnel in Iraq and will identify any action that needs to be taken. We anticipate this should take around two years."

White has met Phil Shiner, of Public Interest Lawyers, who will begin a case in the high court on Friday on behalf of 142 Iraqis who claim they were abused by British troops in the aftermath of the war to topple Saddam Hussein.

This week's high court case, coming just one week after the release of thousands of classified Iraq war documents on the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, will determine whether a public inquiry should be ordered to disclose the scale of alleged abuse of Iraqis detained by British troops. MoD insiders hope White's inquiries will stem demands for a public inquiry. Critics counter that only a wide-ranging and transparent inquiry will guarantee that the true scale of the abuse comes to light. {read rest}
