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!!

Chilcot Iraq Inquiry: "Blair shut me out"

Chilcot inquiry: Blair shut me out, says former legal chief Lord Goldsmith

Ex-attorney general gives new evidence stating he was repeatedly shut out of crucial talks ahead of decision on lawfulness of Iraq invasion

Read the former attorney general's additional evidence to the Iraq war inquiry

17 January 2011 - Tony Blair repeatedly shut out his government's chief legal adviser from crucial talks about the lawfulness of an invasion of Iraq, evidence released by the Chilcot inquiry tonight reveals.

Lord Goldsmith, then attorney general, records how he was "no longer actively consulted" after warning Blair face-to-face five months before Britain joined US-led military action that an invasion would be in breach of international law.

In a written statement to the inquiry, Goldsmith describes how he was kept out of the loop by some of the then prime minister's closest advisers in Downing Street and by Jack Straw, then foreign secretary, after meeting Blair on 22 October 2002. "My advice was not sought" about UN negotiating tactics, he writes.

He adds: "I was not being sufficiently involved in the meetings and discussions about the [UN] resolution and the policy behind it that were taking place at ministerial level." Goldsmith was kept out of the high-level discussions despite his office telling Sir David Manning, Blair's foreign policy adviser, on the day after the 22 October 2002 meeting that "it will be important for the attorney to be kept closely informed of developments". {continued}
