Today is the anniversary of the illegal and ruinous #US invasion of #Iraq. I joined hundreds of thousands who protested it in #NYC and other cities. Remember how #Bush, the CIA, rendition & “confessions” by torture in #Egypt were instrumental. google.com/amp/s/www.nyti… After Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, a Libyan captured in Afghanistan, was rendered by the United States to Egypt in 2002, Egyptian interrogators beat him and subjected him to a “mock burial” by putting him in a cramped box for 17 hours. He fabricated information that Iraq had provided training in chemical and biological weapons to operatives of Al Qaeda.
16yrs later, George W. Bush has since been rehabilitated out of the war criminal he is & into a cuddly artist grandpa, and several of his war administration, instead of being held accountable for war crimes in #Iraq, continue drumming war for Trump or on Twitter play “Resistance”
Trump is a continuation, not an aberration. The roots that brought him to fruition are much deeper than the Bush administration. Bush launched two wars against Muslim majority countries. Obama left office with the US militarily involved in at least 5 Muslim countries.
