The individual codenamed “Curveball,” who lied about Saddam Hussein having Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), has now come clean on British television.
Curveball, who is actually Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, helped fabricate the justification for war which resulted in countless Iraqi deaths, as well as the deaths of coalition soldiers, and the loss of immense sums of money.
However, al-Janabi attempts (and poorly, I might add) to defend his actions.
“My main purpose was to topple the tyrant in Iraq because the longer this dictator remains in power, the more the Iraqi people will suffer from this regime’s oppression,” he said.
It’s sad that al-Janabi did not have the humanity to think about all of the people who have suffered since he lied to the world.
