When I think of this sham of an "Inquiry" the word FUBAR springs to mind. The British “inquiry” for the “truth” into the Iraqi (illegal) invasion (regime change plot) has begun. Yawn, another British atrocity, another whitewash “inquiry.” Just ask the victims of Bloody Sunday, they know all about British “inquiries” 30 years on and still no truth or justice. But, I imagine the British people think they will get the truth because they will be treated differently than the “paddies” were. Guess again.
Calls of Whitewash are already emanating from all sectors within British society. From former members of the cabinet, to big-time lawyers, you name it. What are they so upset about? Plenty. For starters there are “Blair Men” on the so called “investigative” team, and there is the recent addition of two Zionists, one of whom was the creator of the “Blair Doctrine”, yes, that would be the “Tony Blair Doctrine”, the same Tony Blair who took England into Iraq, that one.
link Sir Lawrence David Freedman, KCMG, CBE, FBA, FKC (7 December 1948-) is Professor of War Studies at King's College London, and was a key foreign policy adviser to Tony Blair and an architect of the Blair doctrine He is a member of the 2009 United Kingdom Iraq War inquiry. During the 2003 Iraq invasion, Freedman wrote an article for the independent in which he said: “Even if it takes time to dislodge Saddam's regime, the US – and also Britain – will emerge from this conflict hardened in their power and ready to exercise far greater influence over not only the development of Iraq but also the wider Middle East.” Woo Hoo. There’s a fair and balanced team member with nothing to hide on at least two fronts, the Zionist front and the Blair connection to Iraq front. But hey, who’s counting...And here’s the other Zionist;
link The Rt. Hon. Sir Martin John Gilbert a British historian and the author of over eighty books, including works on the Holocaust and Jewish history. Since 2005, he has been married to the Holocaust historian Esther Gilbert, née Goldberg.The NewStatesmen has a good article on all the “members” of this FUBAR “truth” Inquiry. Here is a wee snippet:
He was appointed in June 2009 as a member of the British government’s enquiry into the Iraq war (Headed by Sir John Chilcot). His appointment to this enquiry was criticised in parliament by William Hague, Claire Short, George Galloway, and Lynne Jones on the basis that Gilbert had once compared George W Bush, and Tony Blair, to Roosevelt and Churchill. The same year he was appointed to the Privy Council.
Israeli historian, Tom Segev, writes that Gilbert's coffee-table book The Story of Israel is written with "encyclopedic clarity," but Segev is critical of the absence of figures from Arab sources. . Piers Brendon concludes that Gilbert glosses over or altogether omits some awkward points in his book Churchill and the Jews A revisionist Israeli historian Benny Morris has described Martin Gilbert as a propagandist who uses overinflated casualty figures in his The Story of Israel
link Chilcot himself. Is this "establishment" man really going to get to the bottom of how we ended up in Iraq? Can someone who acted as a "staff counsellor" to MI6 between 1999 to 2004 be a credible investigator of the flawed intelligence produced on Iraqi WMDs, by MI6, between 2002 and 2003? Will an ex-permanent secretary at the Northern Ireland Office be able to challenge ministers or his former colleagues in the civil service? He also happens to be a former member of the 2004 Butler Inquiry into Iraq intelligence, which failed to land any significant blows.As I mentioned, British Lawyers are already calling the inquiry a joke, pointing out that there is no one on the “Truth Inquiry Team” capable of cross examining or legally interviewing those called to to "answer" to the "inquiry." This is like asking Elmo from Sesame Street, to cross examine Tony Blair, a seasoned politician with much to hide, instead of asking Perry Mason, or for you younger generation Captain Kirk over at Boston Legal to tackle the job. See here:
The composition of the committee. How can I have faith in Sir Roderick Lyne, another establishment man, former senior civil servant and British ambassador to (anti-war) Russia during the Iraq war?
link The inquiry by Sir John Chilcot into the Iraq War is incapable of addressing whether the invasion was legal because it has no one who is legally-qualified on its panel, judicial figures have warned.And lastly, former British Ambassador to Libya, Oliver Miles recently pissed off the Zio-Crowd when he dared to “out them” within the appointed gang members supposedly looking for the “truth about Iraq” I am referring to the appointments of Sir Martin Gilbert and Sir Lawrence Freedman (mentioned earlier in my post above) more:
Sir John Chilcot, a former Whitehall mandarin, has insisted that the legality of the 2003 war will be one of the key issues he addresses in his inquiry, which begins on Tuesday.
But lawyers have said that neither the inquiry's chair, not his panel, which includes a Professor of War Studies, a former diplomat, and a Crossbencher in the House of Lords, has the expertise to do so.
One senior judge told The Guardian: "The truth of the matter is, if the inquiry was going to express a view with any kind of authority on the question of legality, it would need a legal member and quite a senior one," the judge said. "Looking at the membership, it seems to me that legality just wasn't going to be a question they would be asked to review."
Another senior legal figure added: "The panel clearly lacks the expertise to address the question of legality. The members are not experienced at cross-examination – it is simply not their skill set."
The concerns are the latest to be raised about the effectiveness of the Iraq Inquiry, which is expected to report its findings in 2011.
link The former British ambassador to Libya, Sir Oliver Miles, has criticised the appointment of two leading Jews to the Iraq inquiry.Here Here, but this is not really a “Mission for the Truth” it’s a “people pleaser” or an attempt at a “people pleaser” which is so FUBAR-ed it is doomed to fail. And let us not forget the Numero Uno reason this “Truth Inquiry” will be a Whitewash:
The two men will be made privy counsellors in order to sit on the inquiry committee. Sir Oliver wrote in the Independent newspaper that he was concerned that two out of five of the Iraq War inquiry committee members were Jewish, and questioned the balance of the committee.
He wrote: “Both Gilbert and Freedman are Jewish, and Gilbert at least has a record of active support for Zionism.
He added: “It is a pity that, if and when the inquiry is accused of a whitewash, such handy ammunition will be available. Membership should not only be balanced; it should be seen to be balanced.”
link Elements of the new US administration of President George Bush were already discussing ''regime change'' in Iraq two years before the invasion of 2003, the official inquiry into the war has been told.So, the British people are looking for the truth from their Government AND the American government. And to think it’s not even April 1st. The immortal Bush and Blair team must be protected; their crimes covered up, hence the appointment of Blair men and Zionists. Yes, the British people will now have much in common with their Irish neighbours. If British people think an Inquiry will give them the truth, you only need to look to the North of Ireland’s TWO Bloody Sunday Inquiries that never provided the truth, even 30 years on, you will never have the truth, and neither will we.
''We were conscious that there were other voices in Washington, some of whom were talking about regime change,'' he said.
