Vets Day 2 


"One of the biggest changes in politics in my lifetime is that the delusional is no longer marginal. It has come in from the fringe, to sit in the seat of power in the Oval Office and in Congress. For the first time in our history, ideology and theology hold a monopoly of power in Washington. Theology asserts propositions that cannot be proven true; ideologues hold stoutly to a worldview despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality. When ideology and theology couple, their offspring are not always bad but they are always blind. And there is the danger: voters and politicians alike, oblivious to the facts."

Bill Moyers


Except, of course, it's disinformation or at best, misinformation. It matters not whether Bill Clinton or any other Democrat believed that Saddam Hussein was bad, was looking to develop WMD, or was even in possession of them. What matters is that few sane people, with the exception of members of the Bush administration and those who went along with their plans, believed that a full scale invasion and occupation of Iraq was in order.

The only way the administration could get most Americans on board for war, from Congress to the average Joe, was to grossly exaggerate (if not knowingly lie) about a direct threat that Saddam Hussein posed to the security of the United States. It's as simple as that, and I'm sorry Ms. Liebau et al, but no amount of Republican Party propaganda will change the facts.
