Jeb Bush Re-Writes the History of the Iraq War

The fact that Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio can say with a straight face that W. and Cheney and Rummy and Condi were innocent dupes of an "intelligence failure," and that the corporate media will blandly repeat these lies, points to a deep failure in our political discourse. There was no sectarian war going on in Iraq until the U.S. invasion and occupation created the social, economic, and political conditions for it. There was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until the U.S. invaded and sparked an insurgency. While people in Iraq suffer as a result of misguided and criminal U.S. policies, the American people, facing a $5 billion election in 2016, are hearing presidential candidates put forth the most pathetic apologetics, spin, and lies as they try to whitewash the whole thing.
