CONC.: IRAQ - THE WAR THEY WANTED, THE LIES THEY NEEDED

Remember Graham Greene's 'Our Man in Havanna'? The story below, with a lot of interesting and for insiders very entertaining information, reminds many times of the shadowy world and all the fakes. As Greene - who all his live worked 'in Her Majesty's Service' - described his main character: ''He carries his reports to extremes by sending his clients in London a circuit diagram of a vacuum cleaner, telling them that this is a sketch of a secret rocket launchramp.'' - Wikipedia Url.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Man_in_Havana

The War They Wanted, The Lies They Needed

The Bush administration invaded Iraq claiming Saddam Hussein had tried to buy yellowcake uranium in Niger. As much of Washington knew, and the world soon learned, the charge was false. Worse, it appears to have been the cornerstone of a highly successful "black propaganda" campaign with links to the White House

06/07/06 "Vanity Fair" -- -- It's a crisp, clear winter morning in Rome. In the neighborhood between the Vatican and the Olympic Stadium, a phalanx of motor scooters is parked outside a graffiti-scarred 10-story apartment building. No. 10 Via Antonio Baiamonte is home to scores of middle-class families, and to the embassy for the Republic of Niger, the impoverished West African nation that was once a French colony.

Though it may be unprepossessing, the Niger Embassy is the site of one of the great mysteries of our times. On January 2, 2001, an embassy official returned there after New Year's Day and discovered that the offices had been robbed. Little of value was missing—a wristwatch, perfume, worthless documents, embassy stationery, and some official stamps bearing the seal of the Republic of Niger. Nevertheless, the consequences of the robbery were so great that the Watergate break-in pales by comparison.

A few months after the robbery, Western intelligence analysts began hearing that Saddam Hussein had sought yellowcake—a concentrated form of uranium which, if enriched, can be used in nuclear weapons—from Niger. Next came a dossier purporting to document the attempted purchase of hundreds of tons of uranium by Iraq. Information from the dossier and, later, the papers themselves made their way from Italian intelligence to, at various times, the C.I.A., other Western intelligence agencies, the U.S. Embassy in Rome, the State Department, and the White House, as well as several media outlets. Finally, in his January 2003 State of the Union address, George W. Bush told the world, "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

DOCUMENTS WERE FORGED

Two months later, the United States invaded Iraq, starting a conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people, cost hundreds of billions of dollars, and has irrevocably de-stabilized the strategically vital Middle East. Since then, the world has learned not just that Bush's 16-word casus belli was apparently based on the Niger documents but also that the documents were forged.

In Italy, a source with intimate knowledge of the Niger affair has warned me that powerful people are watching.

STARTING THE ILLEGAL INVASION OF IRAQ: 9/11 WAS THE BY THE ''PROJECT FOR A NEW AMERICAN CENTURY'' ORCHESTRATED 'TRIGGER' - their 'Reichstagsbrand'. The 'New Pearl Harbor' they needed to scare and brainwash the people, aiming at their goals as described in their infamous warmongering letter to 'president' Bush. It's hoped by billions of human beings around the world that those who signed all are judged by independent and honest War Crimes Tribunals.
