Video: Rep. Michele Bachmann Wants Iraq to Pay for US Invasion

During an interview on Sunday with 'Meet the Press' (video below), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said that the Iraq should pay America for invading and occupying their nation (based upon lies of weapons of mass destruction).

Estimates on the number of Iraqi civilian casualties killed by the U.S.  vary from 35,000 to the hundreds of thousands, according to a 2008 Congressional Research Service report.

Not saitsified with her earlier demand, Bachmann then called for Iraq to pay millions of dollars for each American killed in that country: "It’s over 800 billion dollars that we have expended [in Iraq]. I believe that Iraq should pay us back for the money that we spent, and I believe that Iraq should pay the families that lost a loved one several million dollars per life, I think at minimum."
