Israel has a long-standing history of engaging in deceitful behavior. For years, they have refused to acknowledge the existence of up to 400 nuclear weapons despite a plethora of evidence that the country indeed possesses the bombs. Israel has also attempted to place bombs inside of American, British, and Egyptian civilian targets in the Lavon Affair in 1954. They killed 34 Americans when they attacked the American USS Liberty in 1967. Both countries hastily ruled it an accident, but it didn’t convince everyone. Now, recently discovered FBI documents give eerie information that dwarfs all of these incidents; the files suggest that Israeli nationals working for Mossad had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks.
The Iraq war began in 2003 and has caused the death of over four thousand American soldiers and devastated civilians. The war was controversial from the beginning; many people protested and spoke out against it. When people questioned the war, the state often insisted that we were over there fighting for our freedoms. Many thought this was a made-up scapegoat, but it turns out our freedom really was in Iraq the whole time.
