Time To Review Recent History - Iraq and Bush Admin

Keith Olbermann on Countdown MSNBC does something every once in awhile that's very interesting. He goes back in recent history, since 9/11, and shows clips of something that was said or done through out the process of our War on Terror, War in Afghanistan and War in Iraq. Yes they are three different stories even though the Bush administration has tried their best to bunch them all together over the past few years because they fear the truth being told in our history books.
Anyway, I wish I could show you just one of those clips, they are so very telling of how this administration as munipulated the media, the story and the American people.
I think it's time that other media stations go back over some of their own clips. Follow the patterns. From day one of talking about Iraq. First it was Weapons of mass distruction, then it was removing a brutal dictator, to liberating the Iraqi people, to killing the enemy over there instead of fighting them here, just give them time to have their first vote we're asked of, give them time to write their constitution, give them time to build up the police, give them time to build up their army, when Iraqi's stand up we will stand down, then it was give us more soldiers (a surge) get control of violence so their government can reconcile their difference, now it's give the military more time to secure Iraq and that we will be in Iraq indefinitely.
It's like watching a teenager try to make excuses why he was late getting home. One excuse after another.
If your wondering if I want the Demoratic Party reviewed, sure, but I believe you'll find they been pretty much consistant over the past 3 years on the war in Iraq.
American's are known for having short term memories. They need to see the WHOLE STORY at one time, like a movie. Just as Keith Olbermann has done in the past, I sincerely wish other networks and cable stations would create that 'movie' too.
It's time for a review.
