Iraq War Launched to Protect Israel – Bush Adviser

Inter Press Service (IPS) uncovered remarks by Philip Zelikow, who is now the executive director of the body set up to investigate the terrorist attacks on the United States in September 2001 — the 9/11 commission — in which he suggests a prime motive for the invasion of Iraq just over one year ago was to eliminate a threat to Israel, a staunch U.S. ally in the Middle East.

“Iraq under Saddam Hussein did not pose a threat to the United States but it did to Israel, which is one reason why Washington invaded the Arab country, according to a speech made by a member of a top-level White House intelligence group.” — Philip Zelikow, President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) 2001/2003 [ IPS ]
