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!!

Final Brit Iraq War Inquiry Release Coming Soon {?}

Don't hold your breath, as they say!

However, he said the responses received by those criticised were so comprehensive that it would take time to sift through them.

Iraq War Inquiry: Chilcot has finally received responses from people the report criticises
09 September 2015 - The Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq War has received the final responses from the people the report is set to criticise, the commission’s chair has said.

Sir John Chilcot has been waiting for the so-called ‘Maxwellisation’ process to conclude, a measure that involves giving everyone mentioned in a negative light a chance to respond.

“In my statement I said that the Inquiry expected to receive the last Maxwell response shortly. I am pleased to confirm that it has now done so," Sir John wrote in a letter to the Foreign Affairs Committee chair Crispin Blunt.

However, he said the responses received by those criticised were so comprehensive that it would take time to sift through them.

No timetable has yet been set for completion of the report, which was set up in 2009 as an inquiry into a war that started in 2003.

“There is, inevitably, further work for my colleagues and I to do to evaluate those submissions, which are detailed and substantial, in order to establish with confidence the time needed to complete the Inquiry’s remaining work,” he said. read more>>>

Chilcot to name Iraq War report publication date 'as soon as I am able'
Sep 9, 2015 - The chairman of the long-awaited official inquiry in to the Iraq War has announced he will name a date for the publication of his report "as soon as I am able", after receiving the final responses from those criticised in the document.

Sir John Chilcot's report into the 2003 conflict has been delayed by a process known as "Maxwellisation", under which those who may face criticism - believed to include former prime minister Tony Blair - are given the opportunity to respond before publication.

Chilcot has come under fire for the long-drawn out process of producing his report, which the then prime minister Gordon Brown said he expected to take "at least a year" when he commissioned it in 2009. read more>>>

Sir John Chilcot accused of 'BULLYING' families of dead British soldiers over Iraq report
SIR John Chilcot has been accused of bullying the grieving families of British soldiers who died in the Iraq War, as they continue their endless wait for his report into the conflict.

Sep 5, 2015 - Relatives of dead servicmen have claimed Sir John, the chairman of the £10m Iraq Inquiry, is using "bully-boy tactics" to frighten them into dropping their legal action calling on him to publish his long-delayed findings.

Those desperate to know why their loved ones were sent to invade Iraq in 2003 want the former civil servant to fix a deadline before the end of this year, having already waited six years since the inquiry first began.

However, in a provocative letter, Government lawyers acting on behalf of Sir John have now warned a group of relatives they would seek costs if the unprecedented High Court challenge is thrown out. read more>>>

"It's a shame Brian Williams will be the only person ever punished for lying about Iraq"

* * * Iraq War Promoted Terrorism Rather Than Reducing It * * *
24 April 2014 - Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War promoted terrorism rather than reducing it and was a “strategic failure”, according to a major new report which estimated the cost of all UK conflicts since the end of the Cold War.
The Royal United Services Institute said the UK could face a bill of nearly £65bn, once the cost of long-term care for injured veterans was factored in, with most of the money was spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The study, called Wars in Peace, said both conflicts were largely “strategic failures” for the UK, The Guardian reported."

Facts: Matthew Hoh {former Marine and foreign service officer in Afghanistan}: "We spend a trillion dollars a year on national security in this country."
"And when you add up to the Department of Defense, Department of State, CIA, Veterans Affairs, interest on debt, the number that strikes me the most about how much we're committed financially to these wars and to our current policies is we have spent $250 billion already just on interest payments on the debt we've incurred for the Iraq and Afghan wars." 26 September 2014

Bob Herbert "Losing Our Way" : "And then the staggering costs of these wars, which are borne by the taxpayers. I mean, one of the things that was insane was that, as we're at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush administration cut taxes. This has never been done in American history. The idea of cutting taxes while you're going to war is just crazy. I mean, it's madness." Bill 'Moyers and Company': Restoring an America That Has Lost its Way 10 Oct. 2014

$14 Million An Hour: War Costs Top $1.6 Trillion Since 9/11, Say Congressional Researchers
December 22 2014 - American taxpayers have shelled out roughly $1.6 trillion on war spending since 9/11, according to a new report from Congress’ nonpartisan research arm. That’s roughly $337 million a day -- or nearly a quarter million dollars a minute -- every single day for 13 years. read more>>>

“With no shared sacrifices being asked of civilians after Sept. 11"

Chris Hayes MSNBC: "If you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought it" In response to Republican opposition to expanding Veterans' benefits on fiscal grounds

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, let alone the results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, issues! As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded, VA budget is still borrowed thus added, problem creating, costs that shouldn't exist!
