Another reason Iraq was wrong

Wiki leaks has been at it again. From the BBC::

The documents also suggest "hundreds" of civilians were killed at US military checkpoints after the invasion in 2003.
And the files show the US kept records of civilian deaths, despite previously denying it. The death toll was put at 109,000, of whom 66,081 were civilians.

Another Hiroshima in terms of innocent deaths.

Also mentioned was detailed information on tourcher which US authorities knew about and did nothing::

 US army field logs published by Wikileaks describe the apparent torture of Iraqi detainees by the Iraqi authorities, sometimes using electrocution, electric drills and in some cases even executing detainees, says the BBC's Adam Brookes, who has examined some of the files.
The US military knew of the abuses, the documents suggest, but reports were sent up the chain of command marked "no further investigation"

I wouldn't be able to sleep if I was George Bush or Tony Blair on such a flimsy excuse of going to war.
