Just over 10 years ago, Wikileaks published the Iraq War Files, 400,000 documents revealing the true nature of US war crimes in the country. These logs revealed, among other things:
– over 300 incidents of torture and abuse at the hands of occupying forces;
– an order allowing US and UK officers to avoid responsibility for torture;
– 130,000 deaths that had been kept secret by the US military; and
– the imprisonment of 180,000 Iraqis, including 1 out of 50 males in the country.
“If wars can be started by lies, peace can be started by truth,” Assange said. Video courtesy of @WikiLeaks.
Convened by the Progressive International, The Belmarsh Tribunal investigated and evaluated US war crimes in the 21st century — and defended Julian Assange’s right to reveal them.
