Not Lying --Just a Matter of Emphasis
I really don't know what to write about this. I'm glad it's finally come out in the media, but I am extremely angry that this was not touched on more before the US invaded another country. Sure, the blog world and the anti-war protesters pointed it out, but we are not FOX news or Rush Limbaugh and we don't blare obnoxiously into everyone's lives on an hourly basis crafting opinion of those less inclined to think and analyze.
Some obviously think that muscle flexing is noble, but, there is a difference between flexing muscle and killing innocent people especially when it goes against world opinion.
I do not want a leader who flaunts his muscle (flaccid though it may be) in my face or in the world's face. This is blatant exhibitionism which did irreparable harm.
Emphasizing a 'possibility' and emphasizing a connection to Sept 11 that did not exist, is a lie.
I want responsible media. I want impeachment proceedings to begin. I want war crimes investigated and prosecuted. Simple.
