But as Voltaire said, "it's dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." I don't blame Mueller for maintaining a low profile. The Cassandra role is a thankless one, and Mueller probably would not have been held over the prescribed 10-year term for an FBI director if he weren't adept at going along to get along.

I do wonder, however, if he hasn't felt, most of these last years, like the "helpless bystander" I suggested he could become. Is that how the other little cogs feel, too, as their out-of-control, destructive war machine grinds on?

This op-ed was first published by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

For more info, see the original New York Times article published on March 6, 2003, my HuffPost article,  and full background on's "The US Press Sell-Out on Iraq War."
