Chilcot’s forgotten witnesses – Britain’s Iraqi diaspora

“I would go so far as to say there was no post-war planning inside of Iraq from either Britain or America … When you invade a country, the first thing you don’t do is disband the state, you do not tell the army and you do not tell the police force that you’re all out of jobs. 

You don’t go and tell 24 million people that because you’ve lived under a one party state for 35 years that you’re all being made redundant, you don’t have jobs to go to and that we are the ones now in charge.” 

- Hussein Al-alak, the Manchester-based editor of Iraq Solidarity News (Al-Thawra) speaking on Chilcot’s Foregotten Witnesses - Britain’s Iraqi Diaspora broadcast on Russia Today 6/7/2016.
