Through the rabbit hole.
Orwell would be proud of this piece.
"cloaked in legitimacy" and "proponents of minority rule" etc.

The US set up the IGC.  THE US SET UP THE IGC!  This is not a democratic
body, it was set up, PUPPETS, by an occupying force which hand picked the
individuals (at least one a convicted felon) and gave them virtually no power to make
decisions, rather a rubber stamp.  Whats more some of these individuals have
not been in the country for decades and likely have little or no backing within
Iraq, except of course by the foreign occupiers.  The US will certainly
prevent the formation of a government that would represent any interests counter to
the occupation "authority's" wishes.  The US is busy building military bases
around Iraq.  Iraq is a country which will be occupied by a foreign hostile
force for decades to come.

But make no mistake - as I said earlier - we have high confidence that they
have weapons of mass destruction. That is what this war was about and it is
about. And we have high confidence it will be found.
