the War Party
did they lie us into war?
the question Americans are asking as the horror of Iraq unfolds.
How did the War Party fool Congress, the media, and the people
into committing American troops to a hopeless, unnecessary
set up what amounted to a lie factory in the bowels of the
Pentagon and fed
falsified "intelligence" to gullible reporters and
the American public. When the CIA and the State Department
wouldn't go along with their scheme, they set up their own
intelligence-gathering agencies – in effect, a parallel government
– which led us down the primrose path to war.
was Congress? Safely in Republican hands. Now that an antiwar
wave has swept the Democrats into power, can we expect
the American people demand an accounting, they won't get it.
The politicians will do the easy thing: they'll let it slide.
"Let's move on." "Let's be constructive."
"That would be too divisive."
Americans want to know the truth. They want to know who lied,
and why. It is being constructive to discover how they
bamboozled us – because it will ensure that they won't do
it again any time soon. If we let them slide, they won't just
slink away – because you can bet the War Party isn't through
with us quite yet.
