Iraq War is an Illegal War - Outcome of all this is that terrorist Osama Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan

Hubris is an MSNBC documentary for the ages. Clearly, this expose shows how the Bush 2 Administration created the Iraq War with no evidence of aggression.

Americans continue to unravel the convoluted circumstances that led our nation into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but the tragic facts are really quite simple:

1.  President George Bush II ordered the American invasion of Iraq without evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
2.  Americans engaged in a war against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, after our nation had already defeated the terrorist group once - they resurrected when the US was snarled in Iraq.
3.  Both wars were the response to the attack on our nation on September 11, 2001.
4.  The perpetrator of this heinous 9-11  attack was Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, who was eventually found and killed in Pakistan on May 1, 2012.  
5.  Both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, at the very least, were a complete wast of money and lives lost.
6.  America now suffers the consequences of waging two unnecessary and wasteful wars. Our infrastructure is crumbling, our schools are suffering from lack of sufficient funding, health care is at risk of loosing reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid and Veterans benefits are constantly being threatened.  

Nevertheless, even given the preponderance of evidence as presented in the Hubris documentary, Republicans continue to defend the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.   Rather than admit to the mistakes of the Bush administration, including Vice President Richard Cheney, they continue to obstruct wealth sharing initiatives (aka taxes) to pay for the illegal wars for the purpose of protecting middle class earned benefits like Social Security, Medicare, Veteran's Benefits and anti poverty programs.
