Editorial: Lies and more lies

As The Common Ills reported, last Wednesday in the Senate Arms Committee hearing, retired Colonel Wesley Martin declared that Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-"Abadi, as I mentioned before, is very weak.  And this is a golden opportunity for the United States to pressure him into allowing the residents to leave and for us to bring all the residents here. As I mentioned, there are enough families throughout the United States, we can absorb all of them. And when you think of all the torment and all the horror  they have had to go through for the past three, four years especially --  well since 2009 -- and yet they still remain loyal hoping that we will be able to do something to lift them out of that tyranny.  It's time to bring them out.  And it's only a matter of time before the fight between [former Iraqi prime minister and forever thug Nouri al-]Maliki and al-Abadi is going to come to a head.  And I fear Maliki has the strong support of the militias, Abadi will be out."

With Congress openly speculating on how long Haider will survive in office, you might think the press would perk up their tired (but obedient) ears and show some interest in the topic.

But no.

Can't talk about that or Barack Obama's Operation Inherent Failure.

Can't tell the truth.

Never can when it comes to Iraq.

The war started with lies.

It continues with lies.

Over a year in office and his success rate is the same as Barack's over a year long bombing campaign -- which is to say an abject failure.
