If Sarah Palin is right, that “water-boarding is how we baptize terrorists,” then she should ask the justice department to take a look at what Bush and Blair have done over the past twelve years or so.

The Daily Mail has recently reported that Tony Blair finally confessed that he screwed up Iraq really bad:

“Tony Blair has finally said sorry for the Iraq War – and admitted he could be partly to blame for the rise of Islamic State.

“The extraordinary confession by the former Prime Minister comes after 12 years in which he refused to apologise for the conflict.

“Blair makes his dramatic ‘mea culpa’ during a TV interview about the ‘hell’ caused by his and George Bush’s decision to oust Saddam Hussein.”[1]

Now, listen to this very carefully:

“In the exchange, Blair repeatedly says sorry for his conduct and even refers to claims that the invasion was a war ‘crime’ – while denying he committed one.

“Blair is asked bluntly in the CNN interview, to be broadcast today: ‘Was the Iraq War a mistake?’ He replies: ‘I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong.
“’I also apologize for some of the mistakes in planning and, certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the regime.’
“Mr Blair was then asked whether the invasion of Iraq was the ‘principle cause’ of the rise of ISIS. The former Prime Minister said: ‘I think there are elements of truth in that. But we have got to be extremely careful otherwise we will misunderstand what’s going on in Iraq and in Syria today…

“’Of course you can’t say that those of us who removed Saddam in 2003 bear no responsibility for the situation in 2015.’
