It very much was among multiple weak pretexts for our invasion. Even after more than two years of occupation, there were polls taken of Americans justifying our presence there on the events of 9/11. The neo-conmen did everything in their power to make a Middle-East boogey-man. The propaganda was non-stop starting in the mid-90s, culminating in the PNAC (the cult of Irving Crystal) open letter to Clinton arguing for an invasion. And the biggest tragedy was that the resulting catastrophe of our Iraq policy had been predicted by Cheney himself years before, in his explanation of why Bush the Elder didn't go into Baghdad and take out Saddam in the first gulf war.

Where did those goalposts go?

If they want to discourage right-wing radicalization, they should definitely dump Fox News.

It's critically important to root this cancer from our armed forces asap.


Wonderful news. Anyone who hates our country has no business serving it. 🇺🇲

Gangs? But I get your point.


I would/could argue that Trumplicans incl organized groups of criminals. I really didn't think my comment all the way through. But it seemed right to me at first blush.
