Dana Rohrabacher

Rohrabacher attempts to rewrite Iraq’s history

The defenders of the US invasion of Iraq are attempting to rewrite history. Will you help us stop them?

Last month, US Representative Dana Rohrabacher called for Iraq to consider “repaying the United States” for “helping them establish democracy.” Meanwhile, former President George W. Bush is now taking credit on his website for having “liberated millions of people.”

The US invasion of Iraq led to the deaths of at least hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.  Two million more Iraqis became refugees.  They did not ask to be invaded.  This is not the path to democracy that any society would want.

Tell Rep. Rohrabacher to stop erasing history.

If we are to truly align US foreign policy with the values of freedom and democracy, we must be honest about our past.  We cannot allow US politicians to replace the history of Iraq’s suffering with a fictional romance of liberation. Otherwise, it will be even easier for policymakers to repeat such an invasion in the future.  After all, before Iraq, there was Vietnam.

  1. Rashad –

    Thank you for reposting our action alert. I appreciate it.

    I'd love to chat more with you about your work on behalf of human rights issues and the Arab American community. Perhaps we can set up a time to chat?

    Sincerely,
