Unhappy Anniversary: Iraq War At 15

by | Mar 20, 2018

Fifteen years ago today the “shock and awe” of an unjust and illegal US war on Iraq began. A million people may have died. Trillions wasted. The neocons told lie after lie, which the mainstream media repeated unquestioningly. Dutifully. Today Iraq remains a devastated, divided country. The war to, as then-President Bush promised, “bring the Iraqi people freedom” has only brought them death and misery. Yet the same neocons continue pushing war propaganda with impunity. Always another monster to slay. We look back at this “unhappy anniversary” in today’s Liberty Report:


  • Daniel McAdams

    Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and co-Producer/co-Host, Ron Paul Liberty Report. Daniel served as the foreign affairs, civil liberties, and defense/intel policy advisor to U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-Texas) from 2001 until Dr. Paul’s retirement at the end of 2012. From 1993-1999 he worked as a journalist based in Budapest, Hungary, and traveled through the former communist bloc as a human rights monitor and election observer.
