The Lessons of Iraq? Ø (That's A Big Fat Zero, Bub!) Who Is Held Accountable For the Iraq Debacle?

In that sense, the Iraq War was the original event initiating the larger Age of Moral Hazard — an epoch whereby our failure to demand consequences for bad decisions has effectively encouraged the political class to get things horrifically wrong, as long as doing so serves powerful political interests.

So, who's accountable for the Iraq War lies and 2 Trillion-Dollar price tag?

Not the responsible ones, obviously.

After another decade we'll probably learn from MSM sources (all owned by the Koch Brothers) that the "librools" were the ones who tricked the poor President and his trusty Veep into thinking that Iraq had WMD's. And that Valerie Plame's husband, Joe, not only was sent to Niger by her but that he found the smoking gun (yellowcake uranium sold to Saddam's government) and then lied about it to cover up for the Communists.

As if 45% of them don't already think that.

The world as David Sirota (and I) see it:
