OTTAWA – Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff denies he helped prepare the United States  military for the 2003 Iraq invasion, despite eight-year-old praise from American  military officials he worked with.

In Saint John, N.B., Wednesday, Ignatieff  laughed off a question from QMI Agency tying him to the U.S.-led  invasion.

“Every single premise in your question is materially and factually  false,” Ignatieff said. “I was working on a project to reduce civilian  casualties in armed combat operations. I’m extremely proud of the work we did  there.

“At no time, in no way, was I ever involved in the planning of any  offensive combat operations by any military forces,” he added.

As reported by  QMI Agency on Wednesday, Ignatieff — who led Harvard University’s Carr Center  for Human Rights Policy — was part of an academic advisory team that worked with  U.S. State Department and American military officials to conduct strategy  sessions before the invasion.

Ignatieff said the centre’s program — which  also included members from the Canadian Forces, and the British and Israeli  militaries as well — ran for years and was not Iraqi-specific.

A Liberal  Party spokesman said Wednesday that Amnesty International and other humanitarian  groups were involved with the conferences the centre organized.

“Remember  Kosovo? We went in to protect a population and civilians were unfortunately  killed. Every military that we talked to was … trying to reduce those  casualties. They wanted a public place to discuss those issues,” Ignatieff said  Wednesday. “I’m extremely proud of my record doing that, because I think that’s  the kind of thing Canadians should be doing — finding ways in which we improve  and increase respect for the laws of war and human rights.”

Just a day before  the Iraq invasion in 2003, a top official with the U.S, air force praised  Ignatieff — considered a liberal hawk at the time for supporting the invasion —  for helping the military prepare comprehensive plans to mitigate civilian deaths  in the invasion.

“I personally have been working with the Carr Center for  Human Rights,” said U.S. Col. Gary Crowder on March 19, 2003. “Michael Ignatieff  and Sarah Sewell (another Carr Center employee) and their program are a  wonderful program.

“They bring non-governmental organizations, military  officers, policy makers (and) media into a forum in which we can discuss these  issues and better understand exactly each of our requirements,” Crowder told  reporters in a Pentagon briefing. “If we’re required to conduct military  operations, we would desire to conduct those while minimizing collateral damage  and unintended damage.”

Ignatieff has been trying to distance himself from  his support for the Iraq War, which was denounced by opponents of the Bush  administration the world over for its failure to obtain the approval of the UN  and for finding no evidence of weapons of mass destruction.

During the  French-language leaders debate last week, Ignatieff said a Liberal government  would never send Canadian troops outside our borders without the approval of the  UN.

  1. My God, when did you sell your soul Mike? If you were a world leader you’d be worst than Hitler, Saddam Hussein and Genghis Khan combined because you’re as dumb as Bush. Our troops shouldn’t be there in the first place. Secondly it’s war…IED is as much a weapon as the tanks and helicopters we’ve got there. Thirdly what would you do if foreign troops were illegally in Canada?? Sing Kumbaya with them?? Get a grip, son. The world is only evil if you see everything as black and white….and the way Fox News wants you to see it. Get a hobby or something, you’ll feel better.

    • I don’t know if they shouldn’t be in there Sunn, but seeing as they are in there…They should be allowed to do their jobs UNIMPEDED, the rules of engagement they are presently following are suicide, not restraint…

      And why the crack about Fox News? It’s doing a better job of saying it how it really is than the rest of the MSM…Yes, we are at war…Not with “terrorists, extremists, freedom fighters”…We are at war with political Islam which is hand in hand with the religion…They cannot be seperated…So, why sugarcoat it?

    • That’s right, Sunn – Fox is incapable of delving into issues beyond “black and white” just like the CBC, riiiiiiight?

      Do you *really* want the UN to usurp Canada’s autonomy as to what wars we involve ourselves in? Because that is exactly where we would find ourselves as you said: We would be foreign troops illegally implanted in a local jurisdiction where we have no place being.

  2. Every country that allows muslim immigration will pay the consequences. Does North America really want to be like Europe with 80% of all rapes being committed by less than 2% of the population (ie muslim men).

    I’m beginning to think that somali men rape white women because white women’s vagina’s AREN”T sewn (female genital mutilation) shut like their women.
