More of the war on truth
The US administration has oftentimes insisted that Saddam had links to Al Qaida. Will it now admit it lied?
The investigation into Iraq-bin Laden links will report shortly, and its findings will be that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.
Will the government be as loud and clear in stating that the links did not exist as it was in claiming that they did?
(Bush even wanted to make it the casus belli!)
Of course not.
They are liars in the grand tradition of Goebbels. They tell lies so preposterous, so incredible, that people believe they must be true. Big Lies.
And when confronted with the truth they shift the agenda.
We went to war because of the links to Al Qaida... oh no, it was the WMD... oh no, it was to liberate Iraq.
And all the while the truth goes unsaid... We went to war for oil. We used 9/11 as an excuse to pursue business that we couldn't otherwise excuse.
