Insipid media consults the same wrong warhawks about Iraq
See this story. With the increasing sectarian violence in Iraq major media is once again inviting the same regressive talking heads who were dead wrong the first time around to give advice on the current situation. And said media is not even mentioning how wrong they were on the first Iraq war, further giving these so-called 'pundits' credibility again. The article points out this is likely because the media bought their bullshit the first time around and can't face up to the cognitive dissonance that they too were wrong. So we're hearing the same lines as before on why we should militarily intervene in Iraq. Lines that have definitively been proven wrong time and again.
