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!!

Guantánamo Bay, A Propaganda Gift to al-Qaida and Their Sympathisers

Shaker Aamer's Guantánamo detention is a shameful episode for Britain
Aamer has been released after 14 years without trial, yet Britain’s security and intelligence agencies and ministers still have a lot of questions to answer

31 October 2015 - Shaker Aamer’s return home is the final act in one of the most shameful and ugly episodes in the history of Britain’s security and intelligence agencies. Ministers, including Jack Straw, foreign secretary at the time, still have a lot to answer for.

MI6, the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence were all dismayed when the Pentagon first flaunted the orange-suited prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. It was a propaganda gift to al-Qaida and their sympathisers, and encouraged much wider opposition to the US, and the west in general, in the Muslim world, British officials have privately admitted.

They said they were surprised by the US policy of secretly flying detainees to black prisons around the world in a series of “extraordinary renditions”, as they were called, and indulging in vicious abuse and torture. Aamer was one of a number of British residents – another was Binyam Mohamed – who were abused at the US base at Bagram, Afghanistan, before being flown to Guantánamo Bay.

British officials claimed, too, that they were not told that CIA flights landed at Diego Garcia, the US base on the British Indian Ocean Territory. Yet MI5 and MI6 and Labour ministers went along with it. read more>>>

Brit Report into Iraq War will Be Published in June or July 2016

* * * 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>>>

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!
