Five police officers were among the casualties.03:00 28.11.15 | 0 comments
Mr Mashele, I think you'll find that the White House and Secretary of State Clinton have confirmed, explicitly and implicity, that the leaked materials were genuine. The "Collateral Murder" footage was hovever edited in a way that made it seem more cold-blooded than it actually was, but even uncut it was still a shocking piece of film. While Assange and Wikileaks have leaked the truth it now appears that the US authorities leaked false stories about having found a mobile WMD laboratory in Iraq and we now know that the entire premise for the war was false, partly invented by an Iraqi dissident who says he liked because it was the only way to bring Saddam down - there was also the infamous British intelligence report, created on the orders of the dishonest Tony Blair, which drew its "facts" from a student thesis found on the internet. The humiliation so far is mostly on the side of the US and UK governments, but doubtless there is still plenty to go around.
