Karl Rove tells Iraq veteran: ‘Sorry for what you went through,’ but I won’t apologize for the war

An Iraq war veteran confronted former White House adviser Karl Rove during a speaking engagement on Tuesday and demanded he apologize for the war, the Hartford Courant reported.

“I have taken responsibility for my actions and dealt with my demons while advocating for a peaceful resolution of a war that was an act of aggression with no clear goal,” said the former soldier, who identified himself as Ryan Henowitz. “Can you take responsibility and apologize for your decision in sending a generation to lose their humanity and deal with the horrors of war, which you have never had the courage to face? Will you apologize to the millions of fathers and mothers who lost their children on both sides of this useless war?”

“I appreciate your service for our country. I’m sorry for what you went through but it was the right thing to remove Saddam Hussein from power,” he said. “The United States government and the United States military was right to do so. We should be proud of what we were able to do in Iraq and we should be sorry that we left them alone, because when we left them, things deteriorated.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What an incredible piece of work this man is, absolutely, and contemptuously refusing to take responsibility for being one of the architects of a war which was, ultimately,all about Iraq's oil, and selling it only in US dollars!!

He and the rest of that unholy, sociopathic quintet, Bush, Rusmfeld, Rice, Cheney, should be shunned for the rest of their miserable lives for lying us into a war which absolutely shattered Iraq, and devolved into a horrific civil war between religious factions, which continues to this day.

But of course, their good buddies, companies like Haliburton, etc., made out like bandits, charging the US government exorbitant amounts of money for shoddy work that many times dissolved shortly after it had been built, and creating burn pits which they assured soldiers attending those pits that there were no safety issues. Many of these men and women are now in the grip of severe, life threatening health issues, and yet the US military will not acknowledge that the problems exist.

But hey, Turdblossom; (that isn't my creation; that was George Bush's nickname for him!!) Not one of the companies making huge war bucks off the Iraq war gave a damn about how many people got killed or maimed for life, as long as the money poured in.

You may have had a conscience at one point, but I would suggest you had it surgically removed, when you realized what an obstacle it is to making money.

And by the way, that last sentence quoted above is a complete and outright lie: " We should be proud of what we were able to do in Iraq and we should be sorry that we left them alone, because when we left them, things deteriorated.”

Does Rove think, for one moment, that Americans have forgotten Muktada Al Sadr, the Shiite Iranian cleric, who founded the Mahdi Army, and threatened that if all Americans were not out of Iraq by December 31, 2011, all American military and civilian contractors would be fair game?!?

It is apparent that the US military took this guy, and his military resources , at their word, and left Iraq.
