They Wanted A Perpetual War

And they made sure they created enough of the 'ghost enemy', international criminal terrorist, to give them their wealth and power producing War for themselves and theirs, done in our names and using our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, relatives and friends!

US unable to document any payments for Abu Ghraib

26 September 2010 - Fending off demands that he resign over the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld told Congress he had found a legal way to compensate Iraqi detainees who suffered "grievous and brutal abuse and cruelty at the hands of a few members of the United States armed forces."

"It's the right thing to do," Rumsfeld declared in 2004. "And it is my intention to see that we do."

Six years later, the U.S. Army is unable to document a single payment for prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib.

Nor can the more than 250 Iraqis or their lawyers now seeking redress in U.S. courts. Their hopes for compensation may rest on a Supreme Court decision this week.


So instead of compensation, the legacy of the most infamous detainee abuse episode from President George W. Bush's tenure is lawsuits, and the court battle mirrors the Iraq war — a grinding, drawn-out conflict. {read rest}

Got little ones around, well their little ones will still be on the receiving end as to the blowback from what was done during the past decade!!
