This is why I have stopped listening to and reading most of the MSM in the US.

NBC and ABC's Sunday news shows turned to discredited architects of the Iraq War to opine on the appropriate U.S. response to growing violence in Iraq, without acknowledging their history of deceit and faulty predictions
Then again one only has to remember the MSM basically cheering on the the preemptive illegal invasion and all the breathless bullshit emanating from "embedded" journalists to see how effing useless they are.

Many of us remember being against both of these wars, when we called the administration a pack of lying warmongers we either totally ignored or branded Un-American and possibly traitors. No fly lists were created on the back of any resistance.

We were very much in the minority then, some 70 to 80% cheered it on

Most of our elected officials cheered it on with the Iraq Resolution

House 297 for 133 against

Senate 77 for 23 against

Lets go back a bit and look what the liars got away with saying without the MSM even questioning the veracity.
"Liberating Iraq would be a cakewalk." -- Kenneth Adelman, a member of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board, Feb. 13, 2002
