    I ultimately blame our collaborating news media for our heinous invasion of Iraq-even more than the lying Bush administration. The scoundrel Bush administration was going to do what it was going to do.....lie our country into a murderous, completely unnecessary war.  HOWEVER, it was the job of our news media to ask the "tough questions" and hold this highly corrupt govt. accountable. Our news media had the power to prevent this unmitigated disaster but it chose to not only play along, but to actively promote this atrocity.

    I'll NEVER forget how CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times continually beat the drums for this invasion and even attacked the patriotism of those brave citizens who spoke out---whether they worked within the seats of power themselves or were grassroots anti-war activists. The New York Times lost all credibility after they recklessly ran that above-the-fold story-written by that poor excuse of a journalist, Judith Miller, that asserted Saddam Hussein had WMDs. The New York Times should go down in ignominy as one of worst journalists in history for that heinous mistake and should never be forgiven for that---same with the Wash. PO and CNN and all of the other news outlets that did the same.

    Bradley Manning and Wikileaks are the only hope of our country at this point, along with truly independent media like Democracy Now, Aljazeera carried on satellite TV such as Dish Network and Link TV.

    If Not Us, Who,..... If Not Now, When?
