Former IAEA chief: Iraq war killed “a million innocent civilians”

The former head of the UN’s chief nuclear agency, Mohammed ElBaradei, said in an interview with the British newspaper Guardian Wednesday that those who launched the war in Iraq were responsible for killing a million innocent people and could be held accountable under international law.

"I would hope that the lessons of Iraq, both in London and in the US have started to sink in," he told the Guardian. "Sure, there are dictators, but are you ready every time you want to get rid of a dictator to sacrifice a million innocent civilians? All the indications coming out of [the Chilcot inquiry in Britain] are that Iraq was not really about weapons of mass destruction but rather about regime change, and I keep asking the same question?where do you find this regime change in international law? And if it is a violation of international law, who is accountable for that?"
