"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)
If ours were a universe governed by order and reason and enlightenment, the front page, above-the-fold story in every major newspaper today would have covered some of the same ground as this piece
, in which Josh Marshall asks Tyler Drumheller (director of covert operations for the CIA in Europe during preparations for Dick & Dubya's Excellent Invasion, now retired) some questions that 60 Minutes
forgot. It should surprise no one to learn that, not only did the government lie to start a war, in important ways they are still lying
- and not even trying to be subtle about it.
