    incredibly successful. Add the unbelievably successful "embed" program, and America looked at the IraqNam and Afghanistan failures as video games, with nothing but successes being reported. Plus, the MSM not only accepted being made docile and obedient under Embed, they were fed constant lies, both in print and on the T&V and ate it all up.

    It was not only faux stories being fed and lapped up by the Grey Lady (NYT), but a direct program of pro war propaganda. The retired generals who found their way on the cable and boredcast T&V stations are, in my mind, traitors. They facilitated the war, they propagandized the war, and they covered up crimes and torture. And they were compensated for their efforts.

    America has been badly served by many of late, but the former military leaders and the entire MSM (absent the Nation and Mother Jones, and a very few others) should be ashamed.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
