Déjà vu and Syrian Chemical Weapons By Wayne MADSEN

26 August 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

President George W. Bush’s chief political adviser Karl Rove once infamously said of the United States under Bush, «We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality». And the reality created by Rove, Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and other war hawks convinced the world, wrongly, that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, that Saddam’s agents were seeking yellow cake uranium in Africa, and that Saddam’s army possessed mobile biological weapon laboratories capable of releasing anthrax.

Susan Rice: Being Attacked For All Of The Wrong Reasons By Sean Fenley

20 November, 2012 – Countercurrents.org
