  • Al-Afari And Away: Ignoring the Saddam-ISIS link

    Al-Afari And Away: Ignoring the Saddam-ISIS link by Daniel Clark During two Republican primary debates, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump claimed that Saddam Hussein had been an enemy of Islamic terrorism, and argued that he should have been left in power to kill terrorists, so that our soldiers didn't have to. Considering that, one might think a reminder of Saddam's moustache-deep involvement in terrorism, along with the fact that he'd retained an active chemical weapons program between wars, would be a major news story. One might even expect that a story about a former member of Saddam’s regime helping ISIS to...
  • "What We Know Now": Iraq revisionism is not knowledge

    “What We Know Now”: Iraq revisionism is not knowledge by Daniel Clark “Knowing what we know now, would you have authorized the invasion?” That was the question that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly put to Jeb Bush about Iraq. The Florida governor’s answer, and his subsequent attempts at clarification, have since been roundly criticized. Little has been said, however, about the awfulness of Kelly’s question. Bush should have challenged Kelly’s premise, by asking her what it is “we know now” that should produce a different answer than he would have given in 2003. When critics of the Iraq War refer...

    ...The Zarqawi memo also reveals how much recent developments have been the product of a deliberate plan rather than a popular revolt. It talks of using the Sunni Triangle as a sanctuary, and of targeting the Shiite community with car bombs, along with Iraq's "bastard government." Stopping the creation of Iraqi security forces appears to be Zarqawi's primary aim.... ...But the problem is that we've been unable to protect and reassure the many Sunnis who would, all things being equal, choose our side....

    The Congressional Abuse Excuse By Irwin N. Graulich May 18, 2004 Shame on the 20 or so American soldiers who abused, or rather humiliated Iraqi prisoners. What is truly ironic is that in New York City, there are many UN officials who are paying East Side women in brownstones upwards of $500 an hour to be put on a leash or have women's underwear placed over their heads. Overwhelmingly, the world has not focused quite as much on the terrorism directed against the soldiers or the kidnapping of civilians. Instead, they obsess over the 20 miscreants, while disregarding the 134,980...

    BAGHDAD, April 17 (Reuters) - Insurgents blew up bridges over a main highway from Baghdad to southern Iraq, further disrupting the country's battered transport system, witnesses said on Saturday. They said debris from blasts targeting at least two bridges closed the Baghdad-Hilla road, one of two highways leading to the port city of Basra. The U.S.-led administration said in a statement that two highways, including the Basra-Hilla route, were closed for repairs and to help halt guerrilla attacks against U.S. forces and supply convoys. The U.S. military said it had no information about blasts targeting highway bridges. But a traveller...
