The US common people, God bless us all, were told that Hussein was involved in 9/11. Later big bro 43 admitted that wasn't accurate, but his president of vice, the v.p., "Feckless, Reckless, Impotent" Cheney continues until today with that lie.
We've even lost track of how many US soldiers have died because this current group of GOP goons have lied to us and the US MSM acting as their propaganda agent.
The article "Public Is Less Aware of Iraq Casualties, Study Finds" at
click here states
"Twenty-eight percent of the public is aware that nearly 4,000 U.S. personnel have died in Iraq over the past five years, while nearly half thinks the death tally is 3,000 or fewer and 23 percent think it is higher, according to an opinion survey released yesterday."
We are in a pre-emptive war and casualties are mounting, as is our debt, but the public can't be bothered to keep at least the number of lost US souls straight. That is more than apathy!
"The survey, by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, found that public awareness of developments in the Iraq war has dropped precipitously since last summer, as the news media have paid less attention to the conflict. In earlier surveys, about half of those asked about the death tally responded correctly."- Advertisement -
Related Pew surveys have found that the number of news stories devoted to the war has sharply declined this year, along with professed public interest.
"Coverage of the war has been virtually absent," said Pew survey research director Scott Keeter, totaling about 1 percent of the news hole between Feb. 17 and 23."
Our standing in the international community is plummeting, as is our economy for those other than big bro 43's top 1%--the oligarchy, because of this illegal, unending GWOT-in particular its Iraqi theatre, yet our common people can't keep track of how their loved ones' lives are being wasted.
Herr Karl did a good shaping reality into GOP spin-what better example than "Mission Accomplished", but the masses had to want to hear that message and the US MSM didn't do their job as impartial searchers for the truth. The US MSM can always say that there was a market for lying about Iraq-their revenues show it all, but they have sullied the reputation of their profession.
Judith Miller took the INC front-man Chalabi's lies verbatim and planted them in the New York Times. Then "Dickless" Cheney spouts off Chalabi's lies to "Meet the Press". The irony is that Cheney paid Chalabi to come up with the lies big bro 43 wanted.
Why did they obsess about sex scandals-a stain on an adult woman's
dress? Whitewater, and now Spitzer's mess, and have no concerns about big bro 43 crimes against humanity even though the man who phonied up the pre-war Iraq intelligence opens up material that makes W culpable for lying about the "imminent threat" of Hussein's WMD?
The article Unmanned aerial vehicle states:
"In October, 2002, a few days before the U.S. Senate vote on the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution, about 75 senators were told in closed session that Saddam Hussein had the means of delivering biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction by UAV drones that could be launched from ships off the Atlantic coast to attack U.S. eastern seaboard cities.
Colin Powell suggested in his presentation to the United Nations that they had been transported out of Iraq and could be launched against the U.S. It was later revealed that Iraq's UAV fleet consisted of only a few outdated Czech training drones. At the time, there was a vigorous dispute within
the intelligence community as to whether CIA's conclusions about Iraqi UAVs were accurate.
The U.S. Air Force agency most familiar with UAVs denied outright that Iraq possessed any offensive UAV capability."
