a report on mesopotamia


"We have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. (We) have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiques are belated, insincere, incomplete. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. ... Our unfortunate troops ... are policing an immense area, paying dearly every day in lives for the willfully wrong policy of the administration in Baghdad."

-- T.E. Lawrence, writing in the Sunday Times Of London, August 22, 1920
