  •  He baldly lied. (0+ / 0-)

    He knew early on that the war was not winnable, but kept sending Americans to die anyway,  spouting "the light at the end of the tunnel" crap. There's a special place in hell for him for that, even if he did come clean in later years, admitting, for instance, that  the Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened.

    •  Yeah and what about Colin Powell? (0+ / 0-)

      Colin Powell lied about the Weapons of Mass Destruction during the Bush administration and a number of us on Kos are vindicating or freeing him from a lot of criticism because he's spoke out against neo-conservatism.  Should we hold the same standard towards Robert McNamera?
