Normalising the Crime of the Century

By John Pilger, 12-09-09

Under international law, “questionable legitimacy” does not exist. An attack on a sovereign state is a crime.

On 27 November, Scott Ritter, the former UN chief weapons inspector, wrote that the invasion “was made far easier given the role of useful idiot played by much of the mainstream media in the US and Britain.”

More than four years before the invasion, Ritter, in interviews with myself and others, left not a shred of doubt that Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction had been disabled, yet he was made a non-person.

In 2002, when the Bush/Blair lies were in full echo across the media, the Guardian and Observer mentioned Iraq in more than 3,000 articles, of which 49 referred to Ritter and his truth that could have saved thousands of lives.

Unfortunately, like Iraq, Afghanistan is a crime. Period
