  •  Democrats were "good Germans" (8+ / 0-)

    I don't need to tell you about Republicans.  But the reason the media didn't go into whoops at the time or now or will until the major players are long gone is that there was bipartisan complicity in the whole thing.  

    Feinstein and Harmon and Hillary and on and on.  People who were far, far, far more connected and had far more access to intelligence than the media knew, knew, knew and they went along and they gave the Republicans sufficient cover to execute the war with only minor opposition.

    We need opposition parties to OPPOSE.  When they don't we have disasters.  

    Iraq is not the media's fault.  Yes, Bush and Cheney are the most vilely responsible, but there is bipartisan blame. Democrats played enabling spouse never stopping one cent of the money to fight the war, going along with every end run around budgets and international law, never filibustering a thing, never defeating a bill, and that is why Bush and Cheney will never be held to account.  

    Now, back to droning foreign civilians....
