U.S. used lies by Iraqi defector 'Curveball' to help justify the Iraq war

History is slowly unmasking George Bush’s Regime. The lies they passed on to you and I about WMDs were based upon information gleaned from the likes of this Iraqi defector who went by the codename “Curveball.”

He has publicly admitted for the first time that he made up stories about mobile bioweapons trucks and secret factories to try to bring down Saddam Hussein’s regime.

"I had a problem with the Saddam regime," Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, who fled Iraq in 1995, told The Guardian newspaper. "I wanted to get rid of him and now I had this chance."Al-Janabi’s information was used in part by the U.S. as justification for the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. More than 100,000 people, most of them Iraqi civilians, have died in the war. Story Here.
