After the USA overthrew #Iraq, US soldiers set up a prison at Abu Ghraib where they & CIA operatives tortured Iraqi citizens to death. The International Red Cross interviewed US military intelligence officers who said that between 70% - 90% of the prisoners were likely innocent.
At Abu Ghraib, male prisoners were sodomized with nightsticks, beaten unconscious, forced to masturbate in front of female prisoners and were told that if they weren't fully compliant that the US soldiers would rape their wives & children. #Iraq #NoWarWithIran
US Soldiers not only carried out rapes of female prisoners at #AbuGhraib, but they also created fake porn photos with some of the women & threatened to spread the photos to their families to humiliate them. Soldiers urinated on the women & dragged them by their hair. #Iraq

It's nice that we absolved #ColinPowell of his HUGE role in the #IraqWar because now he says stuff like this about Trump.

It would be superb if we had a collective historical memory in this country, but then again, #ColumbusDay is still a federal holiday, so, maybe not.
#GeorgeWBush created the climate that got us Trump. He stole that election. He got us into 2 wars we are still in nearly two decades later. He tortured people in our names. He created the war on women AND the evangelical war on gays. & he convinced Collins to vote for #Kavanaugh.
So whatever #ColinPowell has to say about Trump must be viewed through the lens of GWB, #Guantanamo, #AbuGhraib and Powell sitting there on your TV screens with pie charts and fake aerial shots of WMDs.
