Bush adviser: Iraq war launched to protect Israel

Inter Press Services reports that Philip Zelikow, executive director of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, AKA the “9/11 Commission, “suggests a prime motive for the invasion just over one year ago was to eliminate a threat to Israel, a staunch U.S. ally in the Middle East.”

“Zelikow’s casting of the attack on Iraq as one launched to protect Israel appears at odds with the public position of President George W. Bush and his administration, which has never overtly drawn the link between its war on the regime of former president Hussein and its concern for Israel’s security.”
