I spent a few hours cruising the docs. It was interesting to see reports of stuff I recall hearing about in the news at the time, like the bridge collapse that killed 800 or some of the larger IED attacks.
A lot of it is what you'd expect to see based on what was reported by media outlets, but where documents gave me the most color is with sectarian violence. The quantity and detail of kidnappings, executions, and rotten corpses found in all kinds of random locations is pretty haunting. What a cluster****.
i swear we need to **** Iran up in some way and i can't believe we're playing this behind the curtains support game with Iran when we should be threatening the shit out of their government if not pinpoint bombings each time we catch them doing anything in Iraq.
theres just so much info they released its crazy.
Bombing Iran would have made it ten times worse and imagine just how ****ed we'd have been if we had to turn around and occupy Iraq and Iran at the same time.
