Wilkie-press conference thumb

Howard embarrassed? He should be ashamed!

The Independent Member for Denison, Andrew Wilkie, has responded to John Howard’s embarrassment over the absence of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.

``Former Prime Minister John Howard says he is embarrassed that no WMD was found in Iraq,’’ Mr Wilkie said. ``He should instead feel deeply ashamed but grateful that he hasn’t been charged with conspiracy to commit mass murder.

``The fact is Mr Howard deliberately misled the community every time he exaggerated the threat posed by Iraq. He knew full well there was no hard evidence that Iraq had a massive arsenal of WMD or was cooperating with Osama bin Laden.

``As it turned out no WMD was found, nor evidence of cooperation with bin Laden.

``For him to continue to blame the intelligence agencies is plain wrong. His continued cherry-picking of intelligence is nothing more than an attempt to dishonestly distract people from the fact that politicians, not spies, make wars.

``There was an abundance of intelligence material pointing to Iraq having a disjointed and contained WMD program and not posing a threat warranting the 2003 invasion.

``But invade he, the US and UK did which destroyed Iraq and created the conditions for Islamic State to emerge and prosper.’’
