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!!

Brit 'Iraq War Inquiry' Release Coming: What Won't Be Deleted

They will be hard pressed to soften the blow as the report is finally released. Only that given in intelligence etc. that's still labeled secret is open to redaction. Too much came out, and is still archived, in very public testimony and the slew of media reports, in the States with some 72%plus support for quickly abandoning the missions and those sent to accomplish after 9/11 pretty much ignored any hearings were even taking place and especially the British public hearings, as each day unfolded. Reading between the lines and with critical thinking fills in many more possible blanks!

Meanwhile here in the States the now long term rewrite of history, and totally ignoring the realities of the policies set, continues in the Conservative ranks! Especially the lockstep rubber stampers, some still in some more recently no longer in and hawk supporters brought in during recent elections, of Congress and supporters of, who don't seem to care at all in showing their total incompetence in most everything especially governing are still, years of hearings with millions spent and media press on, in awe of Bengazi to soften the coming blow. Will the media here, almost full supporters of same 9/11 abandonment, continue their Bengazi fascination with same and ignore the Inquiry, again, release as well!

'Embarrassing' details about Tony Blair’s handling of Iraq War ‘will not be deleted from Chilcot report'
14 April 2016 - “Embarrassing” details about how Tony Blair and other Labour grandees handled the Iraq War will not be deleted from the Chilcot report during vetting, a government minister has promised as he said the long-awaited findings could be published within weeks.

John Penrose, the minister in charge of the Government’s response to the report, said there was nothing in election rules stopping it being released before the EU referendum on June 23 and pledged to publish the report as soon as completed by Sir John Chilcot.

Politicians used a debate in the House of Commons to warn that the delay in publication may have already cost British soldiers’ lives because the lessons about intervention in the Middle East are yet to be known.

It has now been over six and a half years since the Chilcot Inquiry, which was not expected to last longer than two years, was set up under Gordon Brown.

Next week Sir John will hand a draft of the finished report to British spies who will spend the next fortnight ensuring it does not endanger national security.


He said: "A decision such as those that were made in Libya, Syria and Iraq are made without the knowledge or facts, mistakes are made, and sometimes people die as a result. read more>>>

The Country ran from any and all Accountability, Domestically and Internationally, throughout but especially as the Bush regime was leaving, even allowing it's rubber stamping conservative congresses to maintain control and then take over, states included, as Extremely quickly as they did the Missions and those sent to Accomplish after 9/11!! Leaving everything they did and twisted leagalities, making lawful that which the US had led the World in making unlawfull, to do on the table!!

And now Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after the Whole Country Abandoned the Missions and those sent to Accomplish, and still haven't paid for either nor the long term results from and that includes the VA their responsibility, so extremely quickly after 9/11!!

* * * 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!
