Condoleezza Rice admits: We invaded Iraq ONLY to topple Saddam Hussein

Condoleezza Rice

Condoleezza Rice, the US national security adviser under former President George W. Bush, revealed Thursday the true motives behind the American invasion to Iraq in 2003 was to topple former President Saddam Hussein.

In an interview in Brookings academy, Rice said that US invaded Iraq only to topple Saddam Hussein, not to bring democracy for Iraq.

"We didn't go to Iraq to bring democracy to Iraq, we went to Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein… It was a security problem," Rice said.

"I would never have said to President Bush to use military force to bring democracy to Iraq," she added.
