He also failed to mention other things, like the tremendous demonization campaign waged at those who protested that war, good people of conscience who were made to look not only un American in McCarthyite fashion, but Saddam lovers as well. In essence traitors, enemies of the state.
That playbook still works today, almost too well sadly... Maybe in a few years or so this current version of the playbook will be exposed in depth as well, vision is always 20/20 anyway, but that still won't do any good for whatever war or op that will be currently in play at that time. The lessons are always a step behind, because the US and its Western minions never do bad things currently, similar to MK/ULTRA being exposed back in the 70's and never to rear its ugly head again. Ha!
Present perception is always always always carefully manufactured to be that "THIS TIME, this REALLY is for a noble cause".
And past sins will never, ever, be repeated...
