Trump’s former national security adviser, one of America’s leading advocates of the Iraq war, denied having the death of the Iraqi people on his conscience, insisting the war only lasted four weeks and accepting no responsibility for the violence that reigned for years afterward. .
Bolton, who served as ambassador to the United Nations under George W Bush before his ill-fated return under Trump, made the comments to veteran interviewer Mehdi Hasan during his show on the Peacock TV online service.
Hasan asked Bolton if he really had any regrets about the Iraq war, of which he was a staunch supporter in the early 2000s.
“All these thousands of people who died in Iraq,” Hasan asked, “all these innocent Iraqi civilians, men, women, children, killed by American airstrikes, some in massacres – Haditha, Mahmudiyah, Balad – none of these does weigh in mind? “
“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” Bolton replied. “The war in Iraq, which lasted approximately four weeks and resulted in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, was a brilliant military victory for the United States and other coalition forces.”
