He supported it all along. He still wages it. It gets no headlines. It's mostly covert. The war's 10th anniversary approaches. Oprah's lie was her biggest applause line. What she said was false. 

She either didn't know or care. She plays fast and lose with facts. She's on the wrong side of major issues. She pretends otherwise. Charitable giving doesn't erase support for imperial lawlessness.

" After years of dishing out celebrity gossip and advice on relationships, decorating, cuisine, fashion and what books to read, Oprah fits nicely into the corporate PR juggernaut behind the Obama campaign." 

She "didn't become a billionaire by speaking truth to power. She is a master marketer whose skill is assembling and influencing vast audiences on behalf of her corporate sponsors."

She's orchestrated to stay on script. She worked well with Obama. They're "accomplished manipulators."
