Ex-Bush Official Willing to Testify Bush, Cheney Knew Gitmo Prisoners Innocent

"Now, in a sworn declaration obtained exclusively by Truthout, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who was chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell during George W. Bush's first term in office, said Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld knew the "vast majority" of prisoners captured in the so-called War on Terror were innocent and the administration refused to set them free once those facts were established because of the political repercussions that would have ensued."

Larry Wilkerson is a good man

Wilkerson has consistently been not only one of the most truly patriotic and honest highly placed members of the Bush administration ...

But one of the most courageous and forthright military officers under any administration, of either party, in the modern era.

He was there through both terms, he saw a LOT of shit, and he's come out about all of it on too many news sources and documentaries over the years than I can count.

If you don't know who he is - I would highly recommend Youtubing: "Larry Wilkerson" to refresh your memory. I would be surprised if most of the regulars on this board have not seen him many times before.

This guy is a true hero. He deserves our support.

Will this guy get "suicided"?

(I sure hope not!)

Or have these neocon psychopaths gotten a little soft / fat on over-confidence? Hmmmm....

What would the Founders do?

He found out in August 2002

See that's my problem with these guys. Assuming the role of the righteous angel come to bring the truth.

Another interpretation is that this man was complicit with the administration that tortured innocent people. And he kept quiet about it. Kept taking the paychecks and kept quiet.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Col. Wilkerson is

on Dr. Paul's new Institute's advisory board!

Does our Gray Champ know how to pick 'em, or what?



Col. Wilkerson is Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Government and Public Policy, College of William & Mary. He is the former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Neocons Attack Ron Paul Peace Institute


Tom Woods
April 24, 2013

The Daily Caller wags its finger at the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity because of the two libertarian professors it has on its board, Butler Shaffer and Walter Block. (Thanks to Lew Rockwell for the link.)

The problems with these men are many:

(1) For some reason, they seem to think the U.S. government may not be altogether trustworthy.

(2) They believe in the absolute right to private property against all forms of aggression, a principle that informs their thinking on all other issues.

(3) Consequently, they do not look at the world through a jingo’s glasses. They do not say, “We are awesome and everyone hates us for our awesomeness.”

(4) Their starting point for evaluating the justice of war is the private-property analysis of Murray Rothbard. This is wrong. Their starting point should be, “USA! USA!”

(5) They do not believe that if someone is murdered, they may walk down the street shooting every which way, hoping to get the murderer. They do not believe they may do this even if they wear a U.S. flag lapel pin, or a military uniform, while doing it. They believe that the killing of innocents is a moral evil and a violation of rights.

(6) That’s another thing: they hold to a very strict view of individual rights to life, liberty, and property.

(7) Consequently, they judge the rightness or wrongness of military intervention not according to the maxim “I’m an American and you’re a stupid towelhead, so eat lead,” but on the basis that the initiation of aggression against innocent parties is not allowed, by any party.

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Well, see? There ya go

See my post above: "Larry Wilkerson is a good man"

I did not know this. That's great news.

Like I said, this guy is a true hero of the Republic and deserves our support.

Sadly, nothing will probably come of this.

These criminals will continue to get away with their crimes, no matter how blatantly they commit them or how easily their guilt can be proven.

After all they aren't one of us mundanes, they are apparently above the law.

there may be away

All of this falls back on our leaders and unfortunately most of out leaders for one reason or another have fallen down, to fundraising to stay in power! Raising campaign money is much more important than the country itself.

I mean how hard is it to know its wrong to lock someone up. for now reason.
Even Bush had to know.

We have both side ignoring a simple fact.
We sure seem like a banana republic.

Question who said this

Right now we have the executive branch making a claim that it has the right to kill

anyone anywhere on earth at
any time for
secret reasons based on
secret evidence in a
secret process undertaken by
unidentified officials

Looking forward is a super con!
Sure we look forward if it helps the elite(Banker's Politicians,Army war criminals.
But citizens no way can we look forward! we lock them up in record numbers for victimless crimes.

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?
