Terrance Nelson 'US military operating without oversight'

The US Military has been operating without oversight for some time.
I was in Iraq in April 1998 with Broadcast quality camera and a TV crew at the invitation of the Saddam Hussein Government. The Mennonite Central Committee here in Manitoba Canada had been working in Iraq for many years and they as a Christian group did not do politics, they simply worked as a relief agency. The MCC supported our indigenous peoples efforts to "expose" the Economic Sanctions but they themselves could not or would not be involved in what they considered politics.
